From: Alexey Kardashevskiy <>

The iommu_init() call initializes IOMMU internal structures and data
required for the API to function such as iommu_group_alloc().
It is registered as a subsys_initcall.

One of the IOMMU users is a PCI subsystem on POWER which discovers new
IOMMU tables during the PCI scan so the most logical place to call
iommu_group_alloc() is when a new group is just discovered. However
PCI scan is done from subsys_initcall hook as well, which makes
use of the IOMMU API impossible.

This moves IOMMU subsystem initialization one step earlier.
