Actually I don't understand what for this check was made there. It is
busdma infrastructure business to implement buffer bouncing to manage
requested alignment. But this check enforces application level to bother
with this. Usually it works fine, as memory often allocated aligned. But
probably here is some specifics in your application. Could you try to
just to comment-out that request->data check?
