I did most of my development on this patch series before the bounce buffer code was added and my reimplementation in the dma-iommu path is very rushed and not properly tested but I’m running out of time to work on this patch set.

Further to what we just discussed at LPC, I've realised that tracepoints
are actually something I could do with *right now* for debugging my Arm
DMA ops series, so if I'm going to hack something up anyway I may as
well take responsibility for polishing it into a proper patch as well :)
