Is there some common/generic IOMMU binding which we can reuse here?
Although this isn't exactly an IOMMU it certainly has some similarities
-- it is providing IOMMU like functionality (albeit a very inflexible
IOMMU which you don't need to/can't actually program).

I'd far rather we followed existing patterns rather than invent our own

I'm wondering if perhaps we didn't ought to integrate this as an actual
IOMMU driver, although I'm not convinced this would make sense.

I'm also not sure about shovelling everything as properties under a
single Xen node, should this not be its own node with compatible =
