Yes, I will add more description in next version.

The idea here is:

1. iommu_domain is the setting of the IOMMU(the unit) of an iommu_group.

2. The iommu_group originally uses a default domain or a created one (e.g. by vfio)
   as its effective domain. There is only one user for a domain. If a device is
   bound to vfio driver, it uses the new created domain. And if it is unbound from
   vfio driver, it is switched back to the default domain.

3. But for spimdev, we create an mdev which share it parent device's IOMMU. That
   means, the parent device (along with its iommu group) will continue use its
   iommu_domain, and the mdev will use the same at the same time.

4. This API, is to tell the iommu_group that the domain is shared by the
   spimdev. And it should be changed before it is unshared.
