I guess you could also have the case where for a given range
of addresses, you use a linear mapping and the dma addresses
can be identical, while for other physical addresses you would
rely on address translation.

For example on PowerPC/Cell with infiniband adapters, you can get
linear mapping behavior for DMA_ATTR_WEAK_ORDERING but IOMMU
translation without that flag, for the same device and same
physical address.
