This looks generally fine.

I think the map method in vmgfx that just does virt_to_phys is
pretty broken. Thomas, can you check if you see any performance
difference with just doing the proper dma mapping, as that gets the
driver out of interface abuse land?

While we're at it I think we need to merge my series in this area
for 5.0, because without that the driver is already broken. Where
should we merge it?
