This is usually caused by missing bus_dmamap_unload(9).
(IMHO other ports should have the similar assersions)

It should have proper sync calls otherwise it won't work on
non DMA coherent architecture (like sgimips O2) or architectures
which require bounce buffer (like some alpha), but many FreeBSD's
drivers often lack them since they are not required by "major" ports ;-p

It seems bus_dmamap_unload(9) is needed before calling ti_newbuf_jumbo()
or ti_newbuf_mini() in ti_rxeof().
