If you look at the git logs, you'll notice there's some progress towards
this. It's already the case for the narrow boards. I have a patch to
rip it all out for the wide boards, but there's clearly a bug because it
crashes my parisc machine. Works fine on x86 though. I can't work on
it this week because I'm travelling and the parisc machine with remote
power died on me last week.

I think I already suggested a temporary CONFIG_VIRT_TO_BUS dependency to
akpm last week.

Intel are signing my paycheques ... these opinions are still mine
