Sorry, not sure that I understand this. Are you saying that I can't set
a DMA mask on x86_32 unless I have a block or network driver?

The problem is not that I can't handle 64-bit DMA in the driver, but
that the PCI card can't do 64-bit DMA. I tell the kernel this by calling
'pci_set_dma_mask' with a 32-bit mask, but it appears to be ignoring my
request and then giving me a 64-bit dma_addr_t for the 32-bit PCI card.

Thanks -
