I don't think your original comment was wrong per se. But I guess it
depends on your definition of "mapped". In dma-direct the physical
address is added to the SGL and, on some arches, the address has to be
synced on unmap. With P2PDMA, the PCI bus address is sometimes added to
the SGL and no sync is necessary at the end.
