Subject: [PATCH v3 12/33] iommu/mediatek: Always tlb_flush_all when each PM resume

Prepare for 2 HWs that sharing pgtable in different power-domains.

When there are 2 M4U HWs, it may has problem in the flush_range in which
we get the pm_status via the m4u dev, BUT that function don't reflect the
real power-domain status of the HW since there may be other HW also use
that power-domain.

The function dma_alloc_attrs help allocate the iommu buffer which
need the corresponding power domain since tlb flush is needed when
preparing iova. BUT this function only is for allocating buffer,
we have no good reason to request the user always call pm_runtime_get
before calling dma_alloc_xxx. Therefore, we add a tlb_flush_all
in the pm_runtime_resume to make sure the tlb always is clean.

Another solution is always call pm_runtime_get in the tlb_flush_range.
This will trigger pm runtime resume/backup so often when the iommu
power is not active at some time(means user don't call pm_runtime_get
before calling dma_alloc_xxx), This may cause the performance drop.
thus we don't use this.

In other case, the iommu's power should always be active via device
link with smi.

The previous SoC don't have PM except mt8192. the mt8192 IOMMU is display's
power-domain which nearly always is enabled. thus no need fix tags here.
Prepare for mt8195.
