The history here is that testing the coherency of the domain used to be
based on the domain, allowing the IOMMU driver to support multiple
hardware units with potentially different features.  This has since
become a bus_type attribute, but see Shameer's patch series adding
support for IOVA lists:

https://lkml.org/lkml/2018/2/21/355

This will returns similar requirements as we previously had for
coherency as attributes such as geometry are per domain and I don't see
that the IOMMU API guarantees that those attributes don't change based
on the attached devices/groups.  In fact there's quite a bit of code
pending that assumes those attributes can change based on the attached
devices.  So, I don't think we can do this and enhance our IOVA
handling.  Thanks,

Alex
