dma_map_single should just be a wrapper around dma_ops->map_page that in
dom0 is implemented by xen_swiotlb_map_page.
From looking at the code the issue appears to be that dma_capable
returns false for your device.

In any case even if dma_map_single returned a valid address, keep in
mind that at the moment if the device is not dma coherent Linux needs
to be compiled with CONFIG_ARM_LPAE to be able to cache flush the
buffers correctly. But the failure in that case is a memory corruption
after the dma request is completed.
