I see no good way to optimise for 64bit dma on a 32bit box. The existing API
is extremely clean, easy to understand and I don't agree with Dave's desire
to write another whole concoction.

We do need pci_set_dma_mask_bits(), which in itself lets drivers indicate
SAC/DAC capable. We do want a way for nosey or fine tuned drivers to query
SAC/DAC properties, but most drivers should be letting arch code make arch
policy.
