The issue when using one device (video-codec device) is coming from
dma_alloc_from_coherent() which is called by dma_alloc_attrs(). The
firmware memory-region is parsed and initialize coherent memory such a
region with flag DMA_MEMORY_EXCLUSIVE which means that following
invocations of dma_alloc_coherent (for example to allocate video buffers
and map them through IOMMU) will no fallback to generic memory allocator
i.e. dma_ops. Because Venus is behind IOMMU the dma_ops are pointing to
iommu_dma_ops for ARM64.

OK, thanks for the comments. I have few changes in the firmware memory
allocation part of the driver which makes possible to remove
video-firmware subnode and move memory-region to video-codec DT node.

Is that fine for you?
