Well, if IP22 doesn't speculate (which I'm pretty sure is the case),
dma_sync_single_for_cpu should indeeed be a no-op.  But then there
also shouldn't be anything in the cache, as the previous
dma_sync_single_for_device should have invalidated it.  So it seems like
we are missing one (or more) ownership transfers to the device.  I'll
try to look at the the ownership management in a little more detail
tomorrow.
