It's not possible to use exactly the same code for parsing. The access methods are different (need to deal with port-IO for built-in description on PCI, for example) and more importantly, the structure is different as well. The ACPI table needs nodes for virtio-iommu while the built-in description is contained in the virtio-iommu itself. So the endpoint nodes point to virtio-iommu node on ACPI, while they don't need a pointer on the built-in desc. I kept as much as possible common in structures and implementation, but in the end we still need about 200 unique lines on each side.
