Quick (and by no means thorough) Google reveals that IOMMU driver's 
sysfs-related code dates back as far as kernel version 3.17:

https://elixir.bootlin.com/linux/v3.17.8/source/drivers/iommu/iommu-sysfs.c

I'm not a kernel code expert, but the code *looks* like it's creating an 
IOMMU-related entry in sysfs. So, i take it we can be reasonably sure of 
these entries' presence at least since v3.17 onwards? Do we support 
kernels which don't have this code?
