It seems using the same length (even without pci_unmap_len()) is
crucial here, but I hope maintainers (added to CC) will take care.

Btw, it's not tested yet, but it might affect CONFIG_DMAR problems.

----------------------->

Using pci_unmap_len(), with the same length as pci_map_single(), with
pci_dma_sync_single_for_cpu()/_device() fixes this warning (2.6.32.4):
