Well, there are very few flags that you can simply use for all calls of
dma_map*. And given how badly these flags are defined I just don't want
people to add more places where they indirectly use these flags, as
it will be more than enough work to clean up the current mess.

What flag(s) do you want to pass this way, btw? Maybe that is where
the problem is.
