Was that Andi's objection on the grounds that he didn't think that Xen
should need swiotlb at all?

I have to admit I didn't follow that thread very closely (or threads, as
I seem to remember). Do you have a pointer to the pertinent bits?

Could you be more specific? The swiotlb allocation should be machine
contiguous and so there's no stradding required, but I think I'm missing
your point.
