I need some time to review the code but overall I am quite worried about
patches 1 and 4 in particular, it is ok to have platform host bridge
drivers but we can't rewrite a DMA layer for a specific host bridge, I
really do not like that - it is just not manageable from a maintenance
perspective for the mainline kernel.
