Aha. I looked at the code a bit.
Basically is seems that some architectures use the dma handle
and some the virtual address to flush the cache, that's
where the requirement that same parameters are used for
sync single as for map single comes from.
So it seems that this requirement does not apply to s/g, and that we can just
build a scatterlist structure and do dma_sync_sg?
