Yes, that was the solution I would have used. The other solution is to
reserve a physical memory area for DMA operations that is not mapped by the
BATs (AFAIU nor by any page tables setup by the kernel). Therefore I doubt
that I can simply reuse the dma-mapping.c code for the latter approach!? Do
I mix something up here?

But only, if the whole BAT mapping is killed, right?
