So, I spent some time with this and instead of a new API I think
it makes sure we have DMA_ATTR_NON_CONSISTENT consistently available
and with well defined semantics, that is virt_to_page on the return
value works, it is contiguos and we can use dma_sync_single_for_cpu
and dma_sync_single_for_device for ownership tranfers.

Can you graphics folks check if this:

is something to work with? Especially to get rid of the horrible
dma_get_sgtable hacks?
