Documentation/PCI/PCI-DMA-mapping.txt was renamed to
Documentation/DMA-API-HOWTO. Anyway, I recommend removing the useless
comment.

I think that using "struct dma_mapping_ops" is a good idea even if you
support the single dma ops. You can avoid lots of duplicated code.

Did you compile this patchset with 2.6.35-rc1? I think that you need
to define ISA_DMA_THRESHOLD here.
