Take a closer look at iommu_unmap() - the gather data is scoped to each 
individual call, so that can't possibly happen.

Because if we leave io-pgtable in charge of maintenance it will also 
inject additional invalidations and syncs for the sake of strictly 
correct walk cache maintenance. Apparently we can get away without that 
on this hardware, so the fundamental purpose of this series is to 
sidestep it.

It's proven to be cleaner overall to devolve this kind of "non-standard" 
TLB maintenance back to drivers rather than try to cram yet more 
special-case complexity into io-pgtable itself. I'm planning to clean up 
the remains of the TLBI_ON_MAP quirk entirely after this.
