Thanks, applied to the dma-mapping for-next tree.

This is staging code. Per official decree from Linus we can just
ignore it, and I tend to do so to keep my sanity.

The !PCI case there is dead since I removed PCI support a while ago.
Looks like it is still too convoluted for static checkers to notice that,
