I think this test needs to move above adding the NOEXEC flag, otherwise
we now allow mappings without read or write, which is an ABI change.

I think you mean

& IOMMU_NOEXEC

In patch 2/5 you stated:

        The IOMMU_NOEXEC flag needs to be available for all the IOMMUs
        of the container used.

But here you'll create heterogeneous containers so long as there are no
NOEXEC mappings.  Is that intentional or a side effect of the above
masking bug?
