If sg is already dma mapped, do not call dma_map_page() in

In case of rpmsg, rpmsg uses dma_alloc_coherent() to allocate
memory to share with the remote. There is no pages setup
in dma_alloc_coherent().

In this case, we cannot convert the virtual address back to the
physical address. In this case, we can setup the sg_dma_addr to
store the DMA address, and also mark the sg is already mapped.

In the vring, we can detect if the address is already mapped
by checking the sg_dma_addr. If yes, do not call dma_map_page().
