This doesn't seem like a valid implementation of the replay
method to me. The API doc comment says
     * The default implementation of memory_region_iommu_replay() is to
     * call the IOMMU translate method for every page in the address space
     * with flag == IOMMU_NONE and then call the notifier if translate
     * returns a valid mapping. If this method is implemented then it
     * overrides the default behaviour, and must provide the full semantics
     * of memory_region_iommu_replay(), by calling @notifier for every
     * translation present in the IOMMU.

This empty function is definitely not going to call the notifier
for every IOMMU translation...
