Currently we are using v4l api. swiotlb-xen doesnt have mmap callback
so kernel use standard function dma_common_mmap() to map memory. But this
function doesn't work correctly. We've also tried to use arm_dma_mmap() function
instead of the dma_common_mmap() (HACK in the file
include/asm-generic/dma-mapping-common.h only for dom0) and all is working
in this case.
