ISTR we (the community) had this discussion once. I also seem to
remember the general consensus being that DMA engines would mostly
likely not be worth the effort, although I can't really recall the
specifics.

Esp. for 4k pages the setup of the offload will likely be more expensive
than actually doing the memcpy.
