Right. You can probably split out the arm dma-mapping.h implementation
into the dmabounce version and a version that falls back to my
asm-generic code.

One feature that the arm code currently has that I'm still missing is
highmem support, which seems to be relatively complex in arm
(three different implementations). Not sure how to best fit that in there.
