So if you look at the final version of the header after the whole
series, what assumes a 1:1 mapping? It all just is
local cache sync;
call into the arch code;
are you concerned that the local cache sync might have to be split
up more for a non-1:1 map in that case? We could just move
the xen_dma_* routines into the arch instead of __xen_dma, but it
really helps to have a common interface header.
