Good question. I don't really know.

This used to be pretty important for older drivers since there the
kernel needs to kmap individual pages and patch them up before sending
the command stream to the hardware.

It most likely doesn't matter for modern hardware.

Maybe, but I wouldn't bet on it and I don't really want to touch any of
the old drivers to figure that out.
