Please see the pagelist_struct structure. It contains a comment
that the addrs field is in pages.

drivers/staging/vc04_services/interface/vchiq_arm/vchiq_pagelist.h

typedef struct pagelist_struct {
unsigned long length;
unsigned short type;
unsigned short offset;
unsigned long addrs[1]; /* N.B. 12 LSBs hold the number
of following
   pages at consecutive addresses. */
} PAGELIST_T;

If the DMA api can return lengths that aren't pages lengths, then I
don't think this is really a good API to be using especially since the
firmware requires all lengths to be pages.

It might be good to reference the original code that is currently
checked into the stagging tree. It also strongly suggests the length
is in pages. 

I tested the changes with vchiq_test and added some temp print outs and
I know that count in pages works and that for larger messages sizes the
changes I sent is combining pages at consecutive addresses. Sometimes
alot of pages are being combined.

I wish meld or something similar had a way to load a diff so that it's
easier to review these patches. But I digress...
