Subject: [PATCH v2] iommu/intel: fix variable 'iommu' set but not used

The commit cf04eee8bf0e ("iommu/vt-d: Include ACPI devices in iommu=pt")
added for_each_active_iommu() in iommu_prepare_static_identity_mapping()
but never used the each element, i.e, "drhd->iommu".

drivers/iommu/intel-iommu.c: In function
drivers/iommu/intel-iommu.c:3037:22: warning: variable 'iommu' set but
not used [-Wunused-but-set-variable]
 struct intel_iommu *iommu;

Fixed the warning by appending a compiler attribute __maybe_unused for it.
