IIRC SG variant was proposed at the time dma_map_resource() was added,
dunno why they did not make it (again from memory i think it was because
it grows the scatterlist struct size). My point is more than people that
need SG variant should work on adding it. People who do not, should not
be stop by the lack of it. There is something there upstream, it does
not make sense to not use it. The dma-buf infrastructure is useful to
many drivers.

If you do not want to share the underlying logic of dma_map_resource()
fine (ie not sharing code inside drivers/iommu/*). I thought it would
be a good thing to share code ...

Cheers,
Jérôme
