Hi Jernej,

Thanks for your review!

Ack. I guess I can just leave it out entirely for now, since it's not
implemented.

PHYS_OFFSET was needed on some older SoCs, and the dma_pfn_offset
trick wasn't working, I hacked it and forgot about it. I'll try to
figure it out for the next version.

This wasn't really about the alignment, but in order to get the
offsets in the u32 and the array more easily.

Breaking out the loop will make that computation less easy on the eye,
so I guess it's very subjective.

As far as I know, the field is supposed to be set by the userspace.

I'll look into this

Yeah, Tomasz suggested the same thing as a reply to the cover letter,
I'll change that in the next version.

Did you find some videos that were broken because of this?

Thanks!
