Adding APIs in arm dma mapping code to map a scatterlist in iommu domain
and get dma address. Allocators outside dma-mapping code like ION could
allocate pages and devices would need to map them for iommu and obtain a
linear dma address. Intention is to re-use the IOVA managment code and "mapping"
across allocators.

Can the above requirement be done without adding new APIs?
APIs available to map an sglist (arm_dma_map_sg) does not provide a linear
dma address.
