As a summary, do you think it's good to flush in below way?

1. in iopt_area_fill_domains(), flush before mapping a page into domains when
iopt->noncoherent_domain_cnt > 0, no matter where the page is from.
Record cache_flush_required in pages for unpin.
2. in iopt_area_fill_domain(), pass in hwpt to check domain non-coherency.
flush before mapping a page into a non-coherent domain, no matter where the
page is from.
Record cache_flush_required in pages for unpin.
3. in batch_unpin(), flush if pages->cache_flush_required before
unpin_user_pages.
