IMHO genpool was a bit overkill in this case and required some additional
patches for aligned allocations. In the next version I also want to extend
this bitmap based allocator to dynamically resize the bitmap for more than
one page if the io address space gets exhausted.

Ah, right. I forgot about the case when devices need to share one domain.
Moving iommu_domain_alloc out of arm_iommu_attach_device and giving that
function just a pointer to the iommu domain should solve this issue. I will
change this in the next version of the patches.
