PCI_DEVID() is defined as

#define PCI_DEVID(bus, devfn)  ((((u16)(bus)) << 8) | (devfn))

So PCI_DEVID of 0 is a valid PCI DEVID.

How about checking if the device is PCI in of_iommu_configure() using 
dev_is_pci(dev) macro and return immediately for PCI? Need to include 
pci.h in this file though.

Some of the iommu drivers already include this.

a0868495@...s-ubuntu:~/projects/linux-keystone$ grep -r pci.h drivers/iommu/
drivers/iommu/amd_iommu_v2.c:#include <linux/pci.h>
drivers/iommu/dmar.c:#include <linux/pci.h>
drivers/iommu/amd_iommu_types.h:#include <linux/pci.h>
drivers/iommu/amd_iommu.c:#include <linux/pci.h>
drivers/iommu/fsl_pamu_domain.c:#include <sysdev/fsl_pci.h>
drivers/iommu/iommu.c:#include <linux/pci.h>
drivers/iommu/intel-iommu.c:#include <linux/pci.h>
drivers/iommu/intel_irq_remapping.c:#include <linux/pci.h>
drivers/iommu/arm-smmu.c:#include <linux/pci.h>
drivers/iommu/amd_iommu_init.c:#include <linux/pci.h>
drivers/iommu/irq_remapping.c:#include <linux/pci.h>

This will allow us to re-visit this later for IOMMU support for PCI 
without polluting the API.
