Can you back that up by some kernel documentation? There is a reason why
pci_alloc_pool uses dma_addr_t to store the address and _not_ unsigned
long. This are physical addresses, nothing the kernel can access
directly without a mapping.

Xen changes a lot of things in the memory management. This includes that
physical != machine addresses, where i915 failed horrible.

No, I don't have that hardware.
