SubjectRe: [PATCH 4/6] dma-mapping: merge direct and noncoherent ops

FYI, you commit bc3ec75de545 ("dma-mapping: merge direct and noncoherent
ops") has caused:

fddi0: DMA command request failed!
fddi0: Adapter open failed!

with the `defxx' driver on my R4400SC TURBOchannel DECstation (but not the
R3400 one) and consequently the interface does not work anymore. Both are
non-coherent cache systems, however the R3400 implements the write-through
policy while the policy of the R4400SC is write-back (it also has 1MiB of
secondary cache), which I suspect is the reason of the difference.

I'll be experimenting with this commit to figure out what the real cause
is, but it'll take a while as my resources are limited, so I'm sending
this early heads-up in case you or someone else has an idea what might be
going wrong here.
