Yes, Christoph mentioned in the last series that this should probably
change to an unsigned but I wasn't really sure if that change should be
a part of the P2PDMA series.

It was BUG_ON in the original code. So I felt I should leave it.

Well there might be 8 users of dma_map_sg_attrs() but there are a very
large number of dma_map_sg(). Seems odd to me to single out the first as
requiring these changes, but leave the latter.

I'm not that opposed to this. But it will make this series a fair bit
longer to change the 8 map_sg_attrs() usages.
