It's OK to have multiple mappings that are *all* DMA_TO_DEVICE, which
looks to be the case that this check was intended to allow. However I
think you're right that it should still actually check for conflicting
directions between the new entry and any existing ones, otherwise it
ends up a bit too lenient.
