It just means that there is no global view of the VA <-> PA mapping,
especially the device itself might see completely different VAs for the
same PAs as the kernel sees.

I still don't understand how you want to derive that by summing up properties
of parent devices, and what you would do with the sum - you would still
need to create a mapping for the result (and in case of dma convert it to
the proper address the device sees, which is inherently MD).
