I _really_ don't want these exposed in any shape or form to driver
code. I've seen too many hacks out there where people have gone
under the cover of the APIs they should be using, and headed straight
for the low-level functionality - adding function prototypes to get
at stuff they have no business doing. Moving this here is just
asking for it to be abused.

Nothing in our implementation of these DMA operations guarantees
that those mean "clean" and "invalidate". The DMA operations are
there so that CPUs can implement whatever they need at the map and
unmap times - and I've been very careful not to specify which cache
operations are involved.

For example, on older CPUs, __dma_page_dev_to_cpu() is almost
always a no-op.

If you want something that does something specific, then we need
something designed to do something specific. Please don't re-use
what you think will fit.
