It implements of_xlate that makes it a driver using the fwspec probe

The issue is in apple-dart. Its logic for avoiding bus probe vs
fwspec probe is not correct.

It does:

static int apple_dart_of_xlate(struct device *dev, struct of_phandle_args *args)
        dev_iommu_priv_set(dev, cfg);


static struct iommu_device *apple_dart_probe_device(struct device *dev)
        struct apple_dart_master_cfg *cfg = dev_iommu_priv_get(dev);
        struct apple_dart_stream_map *stream_map;
        int i;

        if (!cfg)
                return ERR_PTR(-ENODEV);

Which leaks the cfg memory on rare error cases and wrongly allows the
driver to probe without a fwspec, which I think is what you are

It should be

       if (!dev_iommu_fwspec_get(dev) || !cfg)
                return ERR_PTR(-ENODEV);

To ensure the driver never probes on the bus path.

Clearing the dev->iommu in the core code has the side effect of
clearing (and leaking) the cfg which would hide this issue.
