By looking closer, it seems that we included the uapi header for:
+	struct iommu_domain *(*domain_alloc_user)(struct device *dev, u32 flags,
+						  enum iommu_hwpt_data_type data_type,
+						  struct iommu_domain *parent,
+						  const struct iommu_user_data *user_data);

So we could drop the include, and instead add this next to structs:
+enum iommu_hwpt_data_type;

Then it's not that necessary to have a new header? We could mark a
section of "driver exclusively functions" in iommu.h, I think.

Ah, then domain_alloc_user can omit the enum iommu_hwpt_data_type.

Thanks!
