I could get behind this. Though a couple of points:

1) It means that sg_has_p2p has to walk the entire sg and check every
page. Then map_sg_p2p/map_sg has to walk it again and repeat the check
then do some operation per page. If anyone is concerned about the
dma_map performance this could be an issue.

2) Without knowing exactly what the arch specific code may need to do
it's hard to say that this is exactly the right approach. If every
dma_ops provider has to do exactly this on every page it may lead to a
lot of duplicate code:

foreach_sg page:
if (pci_page_is_p2p(page)) {
dma_addr = pci_p2p_map_page(page)
if (!dma_addr)
return 0;

The only thing I'm presently aware of is the segment check and applying
the offset to the physical address -- neither of which has much to do
with the specific dma_ops providers. It _may_ be that this needs to be
bus specific and not arch specific which I think is what Dan may be
getting at. So it may make sense to just have a pci_map_sg_p2p() which
takes a dma_ops struct it would use for any page that isn't a p2p page.
