Hii Ben,
        I couldn't find any instances of pci_dma_sync_single_for_cpu in
the drivers/staging/qlge/ driver, I ran a simple `git grep pci_dma_sync_single_for_cpu/device`
and got nothing.
If I am wrong, please send the line number of the usages.

Thanks for reminding me this, I would send a follow up patch to remove
"pci_dma_*" from "avoid legacy/deprecated apis (ex. replace pci_dma_*, replace pci_enable_msi,
  use pci_iomap)".


Thanks and Cheers,

Suraj Upadhyay.
