It is unrelated to this patch, but YES you are right.  I was aware of
this, but it slipped my mind.  You were the one that taught me the
principle page_pool is based on, that we keep the DMA mapping, but
instead let the driver perform the DMA-sync operations.

Thanks for catching this!  I actually think that the current small
ARM64 board we are playing with at the moment (Espressobin) will have a
performance benefit from doing this.

I do have a board Machiattobin, that operate with SWIOTLB bounce
buffers, which it is not suppose to, and something that I'll hopefully
get a round to fix soon.  But we have not implemented use of page_pool
on that board yet. So, thanks for catching this.
