This will make the sync functions behave as they do in the ARM

looked over by the core kernel DMA guys.

That doesn't work however:

Well, I think there is probably a grey area over what accesses the kernel can make to memory that it currently has mapped by dma_map_single.... I think I will just remove the direction checks from the sync functions, leave them in the map/unmap functions, and hope that suffices to get most drivers working.

Thanks for your testing efforts on this!
