xen/iommu: x86: Clear the root page-table before freeing the page-tables

The new per-domain IOMMU page-table allocator will now free the
page-tables when domain's resources are relinquished. However, the
per-domain IOMMU structure will still contain a dangling pointer to
the root page-table.

Xen may access the IOMMU page-tables afterwards at least in the case of
PV domain:

This will result to a use after-free and possibly an host crash or
memory corruption.

It would not be possible to free the page-tables further down in
domain_relinquish_resources() because cleanup_page_mappings() will only
be called when the last reference on the page dropped. This may happen
much later if another domain still hold a reference.

After all the PCI devices have been de-assigned, nobody should use the
IOMMU page-tables and it is therefore pointless to try to modify them.

So we can simply clear any reference to the root page-table in the
per-domain IOMMU structure. This requires to introduce a new callback of
the method will depend on the IOMMU driver used.

Take the opportunity to add an ASSERT() in arch_iommu_domain_destroy()
to check if we freed all the IOMMU page tables.
