OK, well I see what you are saying, but if we intended to support all 3
for Tegra194, then we should ensure all 3 are initialised correctly.

My concern here is testing, because when things break in upstream I am
usually the one that tracks it down. Not having clear warning/error
messages when something is not initialised as expected makes it harder.

It would be better to query the number of SMMUs populated in device-tree
and then ensure that all are initialised correctly.

Jon
