Sadly that doesn't work on all archs either... some will return
addresses in the "vmalloc" space from dma_alloc_coherent() (due to the
need to create non-cachable mappings there) and you can't pass those
through virt_to_phys() either.

I'm sad that thing got merged at all. This whole videobuf2 looks like an
unreviewed pile of crap to me. It re-invents dma pool management,
re-invents even kref's, etc...

As for mmap'ing DMA, there's an attempt at fixing that done by the Alsa
folks in the form of dma_mmap_coherent(). (See sound/core/pcm_native.c).

Only ARM implements it now. We need to move the

#define ARCH_HAS_DMA_MMAP_COHERENT

Out of the sound code into an ARM header tho, that way you can use it
too, and I shall implement a variant for non-coherent embedded PPCs
while at it (I'll take care of that last part).

Ben.
