I think that would be the wrong direction..

identity_domain is a pointer that is always, ALWAYS an identity
domain. It is the shortcut for drivers (and all drivers should do
this) that implement a global static identity domain.

default_domain is a shortcut to avoid implementing the entire flow
around def_domain_type/domain_alloc for special cases. For this patch
the specialc ase is the IOMMU_DOMAIN_PLATFORM.

We'll probably also get a blocking_domain pointer here too.

All of this is removing the type multiplexor in alloc_domain so we can
so  alloc_domain_paging()

But that isn't what it is for, default_domain is the operational
domain for attached drivers..
