Did you read my reply at all? The explanation I'm expecting here is
why error checking is all of the sudden needed _at all_.

If the operation got fully rolled back - yes. Whether fully rolling back
is feasible there though is - see the respective discussion - an open
question.

Clearly not - not only are you losing the return value of
iommu_iotlb_flush_all() now, you would then also call
iommu_teardown() in the "success" case. My comment was
related to code structure, yet you seem to have taken it
literally.
