There's already plenty of other drivers that do something similar to
this. Take a look at the arm-smmu driver, for example, which seems to be
doing exactly the same thing to finding the right device tree node to
look at (see dev_get_dev_node() in drivers/iommu/arm-smmu/arm-smmu.c).

tegra_smmu_probe() already takes a struct tegra_mc *. Did you mean
tegra_smmu_probe_device()? I don't think we can do that because it isn't
known at that point whether MC really is the SMMU. That's in fact the
whole reason why we have to go through this whole dance of iterating
over the iommus entries to find the SMMU.
