AFAICS this is entirely on intel-iommu - from a brief look it appears
that all the IOVA calculations would handle the offset correctly, but
then __domain_mapping() blindly uses sg_page() for the physical address,
so if offset is larger than a page it would end up with the DMA mapping
covering the wrong part of the buffer.
Does the diff below help?
