Well, vduse is the only driver that does this hack - we had a few more
and we got rid of it.  It basically is the only thing preventing us
from doing direct calls into the iommu code and compile out dma_ops
entirely for non-Xen builds on the common architectures.

So yes, I'd really like to see it gone rather sooner than later.
