Post 3.0. Having it working in dom0 is good enough for iSCSI.

Unfortunately, many of the drivers use pci_map_page even for jumbo
frames, which is defined as dma_map_page which uses page_to_phys and
assumes that only a single page is being mapped. 

I think we'll need to create another cache for jumbo frames and bless
them with xen_contig_memory in the ctor function. Hmm, I'm not sure that
ctor functions can return failure, though...
