Understand. But the current code is that vring_use_dma_api will always return
true, if the current OS is a xen VM.

Actually it needs to return false for my case, then we could use sg_phys(sg)
to get the correct physical address.

You mean https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/10742923/ ?

You suggest use cma there, but vring_use_dma_api will still return true if the 
is running on xen. Then vring_map_one_sg will still runs into __dma_map_area.

In my case, just need vring_use_dma_api to return false and use sg_phys(sg) to
get the correct physical address, whether per dma reserved area or per device
