As indicated in the therad ( http://lists.xensource.com/archives/html/xen-devel/2007-04/msg00135.html ) our driver has a 35-bit mask and maintains it's own bounce pools. Our experience with native linux is that this arrangement scales well as against using the shared system pool.
pci_map_single as it stands today sneaks a swiotlb buffer underneath us and we end up implicitly falling back upon the shared pool.
Using the new xen_is_contiguous_region() would enable our driver to fall back upon it's own pool.
This is my first patch to Xen. If you approve of the patch, I will resubmit the changes as required by you.
