[PATCH] iommu: Do not probe devices on IOMMU-less busses

From: Thierry Reding <treding at nvidia.com>

The host1x bus implemented on Tegra SoCs is primarily an abstraction to
create logical device from multiple platform devices. Since the devices
in such a setup are typically hierarchical, DMA setup still needs to be
done so that DMA masks can be properly inherited, but we don't actually
want to attach the host1x logical devices to any IOMMU. The platform
devices that make up the logical device are responsible for memory bus
transactions, so it is them that will need to be attached to the IOMMU.

Add a check to __iommu_probe_device() that aborts IOMMU setup early for
busses that don't have the IOMMU operations pointer set since they will
cause a crash otherwise.

Note that this is probably also required for the BCMA bus implemented in
drivers/bcma/main.c since no IOMMU operations are ever assigned to that
