I would also love to see their comments here ;)

One can use grant-table's DMA API without using dma-buf at all, e.g.
dma-buf is sort of functionality on top of DMA allocated memory.
We have a use-case for a driver domain (guest domain in fact)
backed with IOMMU and still requiring allocations created as
contiguous/DMA memory, so those buffers can be passed around to
drivers expecting DMA-only buffers.
So, IMO this is a valid use-case "to have XEN_GRANT_DMA_ALLOC
without XEN_GNTDEV_DMABUF"

Ok, will define what I have in the next patch, but won't
initialize anything until the next patch. Will this work for you?

The reason I have this code here is that it is heavily
tied to gntdev's internal functionality, e.g. map/unmap.
I do not want to extend gntdev's API, so gntdev-dmabuf can
access these. What is more dma-buf doesn't need to know about
maps done by gntdev as there is no use of that information
in gntdev-dmabuf. So, it seems more naturally to have
dma-buf's related map/unmap code where it is: in gntdev.
