Ok, I can do that next week.

I settled on the flags because I thought the interface could be expanded
to do more things like automatically copy iomem to a bounce buffer (with
a flag). It'd also be possible to add things like vmap and
physical_address to the interface which would cover even more sg_page
users. All the implementations would then share the common offset
calculations, and switching between them becomes a matter of changing a
couple flags.

If you're still not convinced by the above arguments then I'll change
it but I did have reasons for choosing to do it this way.

I am fine with removing the offset versions. I will make that change.

Thanks,

Logan
