Please give me a full list of the IOMMU drivers which use this method.

If you're borrowing code and ideas from other drivers, then at least
please borrow them from a modern good-looking drivers. And I already
pointed out that following cargo cult is not always a good idea.

ARM-SMMU isn't a modern driver and it has legacy code. You shouldn't
copy it blindly. The sun50i-iommu driver was added half year ago, you
may use it as a reference.

Always consult the IOMMU core code. If you're too unsure about
something, then maybe better to start a new thread and ask Joerg about
the best modern practices that IOMMU drivers should use.
