Is this "and' or 'or'?

I would, in fact, suggest to make the logic the same in both
xen_swiotlb_alloc_coherent() and xen_swiotlb_free_coherent() to avoid
this. This will involve swapping if and else in the former.

I don't think this is right.

if ((dev_addr + size - 1 > dma_mask) || range_straddles_page_boundary(phys, size))

No?
