That's true. We are working on enabling a new platform which heavily
uses ION and some driver needs to use this API, so I guess there is some
other plaforms may have the similar requirements. If you think this patch
should be merged after there is an in-tree user, I'm OK with it :)

I assume that driver's author will start to push his drivers in batch soon.

Thanks,
Feng
