I'm pretty sure dma_get_sgtable has been around much longer and was
supposed to work, but only really did work properly for arm32, and
for platforms with coherent DMA. I bet he is using non-coherent arm64,
and it would be broken for other drivers there as well if people did
test them, which they apparently so far did not.
