I agree that some of this has evolved in a way that some of the names
are a bit odd now. Could definitely use a cleanup, but that's not really
part of this series. When I have some time I can look at doing a cleanup
series to help with some of this.

Before this patch, it was required that users of P2PDMA call
pci_p2pdma_distance_many() in some form before calling
pci_p2pdma_map_sg(). So, by convention, a usable map type had to already
be in the cache. The warning was there to yell at anyone who wrote code
that violated that convention.

This patch removes that convention and allows users to map P2PDMA pages
sight unseen and if the mapping type isn't in the cache, then it will
determine the mapping type at dma mapping time. Thus, the warning can be
removed and the function can fail normally if the mapping is unsupported.
