Have you measured the performance difference on both variants? The
compound-page approach only works for cases when the physical memory you
map contiguous and correctly aligned.

If it is really needed I would prefer a separate iotlb_sync_map()
call-back that is just NULL when not needed. This way all users that
don't need it only get a minimal penalty in the mapping path and you
don't have any requirements on the physical memory you map to get good
