My memory is getting a little bad, but as dma_direct_map_resource is
mostly used for (non-PCIe) peer to peer transfers, any kind of mapping
from the host address should be excluded.

(dma_direct_map_resource in general is a horrible interface and I'd
prefer everyone to switch to the map_sg based P2P support, but we
have plenty of users for it unfortunately)
