Re: device DMA into other devices' space:
(1) if target device is on the same bus, then bus addresses
should be pretty easy.
(2) if target device is on a different bus, then you need
to translate the address on one to the address on another.
The bus_dma* interfaces proposed here were intended for device<->memory
transfers, however. I'm willing to say "cross the other bridge when
we come to it for real," since the possibility space is ... very large
and we need a real, practical solution to this problem Soon.
