Hmm, these interfaces are wrong for drivers surely because they can't
handle dma mapping properly. However, they are exactly what swiotlb
needs (swiotlb doesn't need to care about dma mapping). Until 2.6.28,
swiotlb has used them. They are with IA64, X86_64 and PPC_32, I think.

I'm not sure what you mean. And I don't think ppc wants swiotlb_alloc.
