In the IOMMU hot-add path, there's a need to check whether an IOMMU
has been probed. Instead of checking the IOMMU pointer in the global
list, it's better to allocate a flag bit in iommu->flags for this
Sorry I didn't get the point of original check. This is the hotplug path
hence the caller of this function should already figure out it's a new
iommu before reaching this point?
Either did I. It was added by below commit without any comments about

I went through the whole hot-add process and found this check seemed to
Hot-add process starts from dmar_device_hotplug(), it uses a rwlock to
synchronize the hot-add paths.
2387 if (insert)
2388 ret = dmar_hotplug_insert(tmp);
2390 ret = dmar_hotplug_remove(tmp);
-->dmar_parse_one_drhd() /* the added intel_iommu is allocated here*/
-->dmar_hp_add_drhd() /* the intel_iommu is about to bring up */
The duplicate check here:
All the iommu units are allocated and then initialized in the same
synchronized path. There is no need to check a duplicate initialization.
I would like to remove this check if no objection.
