Sorry I didn't get this. We probably don't want to instantiate a PCI
root complex just for the IOMMU, so it needs to be in the same PCI
segment as managed endpoints. For example in my VM the AMD IOMMU is
presented as 00:02.0, between other devices on PCI bus 00.

In any case, I have a solution for virtio-pci that works with DT and
ACPI, and isn't excessively awful. I'll probably send it as part of the
next version.
