Is Martin still alive? He hasn't been active in PCI development well
over six months, maybe a year now. Ivan (alpha hacker) appeared on the
scene to fix serious PCI bridge bugs, DaveM has added some PCI DMA

code from Martin in a long long time, and only a comment or two in
recent memory.

As has been explained, the current API supports this just fine without

Also, changing the API in the stable series should be frowned upon,
-especially- something domain specific like this.
