OK, so the first thing that springs to mind is that we already have one
of these things: the ibmvscsi ... is there no way we can share code
between this and the other PV drivers?

This is a PCI emulation driver ... it shouldn't be x86 only.

Why do you need coherent memory for the sg list? Surely the use pattern
of an SG list is that it follows a predefined ownership model between
the driver and the virtual device, thus not really requiring coherent
memory?
