    BTW, let me expand on this one. The sg_list change was dropped, davem
    and I decided to evolve the current scatterlist in two steps:

    - add ->page and ->offset and have the PCI DMA mapping interface use
    that if available. This step has already been taken with the pci64
    patches.

    - Remove ->address completely. This step must be taken to ensure that
    drivers will be highmem safe. Period. Don't know when we will do this
    yet.
