Umm, annoying race CPU writeback vs. next DMA descriptor.

If DMA device can't use sparse DMA descriptors
(i.e. one descriptor per each cacheline),
the only workaround is BUD_DMA_COHERENT on
bus_dmamem_map(9), I think.
In msk(4) case your patch might work, but it might cause
some performance hit on other ports (which don't have
cache coherency problems) and it would be a bit ugly
as well as BUS_DMA_COHERENT workaround.
Actually I think there are very few drivers which
will work without BUS_DMA_COHERENT..
