It's not the design of the API, but I'm guessing, given the way the API
works on most arch's that it will work. However, if you just want a
single element sync'd, won't dma_sync_single_for_cpu do that
transparently (as in just feed in the address and length from the sg
list), without mucking with the sg API?
