Thanks, these are encouraging words! We've been side tracked with a
number of things but it is still planned to get this included upstream
sooner rather than later. I am not sure how we will approach the
mangling of DMA addresses to fit the PCIe's quirky address map, but
hopefully with Christoph's latest chunk of work, there is even less to
be done by drivers.
