Looks like I ended up doing the version of the io-pgtable change that I
suggested here, which was merged recently (4b123757eeaa). Patch #3
should also be effectively obsolete now since the SWIOTLB/dma-direct
rework (21f237e4d085). Apparently I also started reworking patch #4 in
my tree at some point but sidelined it - I think that was at least
partly due to another thread[1] which made it seem less clear-cut
whether this is always the right thing to do.

Robin.
