Currently, when we are creating DMA mappings for memory that's
either external or is backed by hugepages in IOVA as PA mode, we
assume that each page is necessarily discontiguous. This may not
actually be the case, especially for external memory, where the
user is able to create their own IOVA table and make it
contiguous. This is a problem because VFIO has a limited number
of DMA mappings, and it does not appear to concatenate them and
treats each mapping as separate, even when they cover adjacent
areas.

Fix this so that we always map contiguous memory in a single
chunk, as opposed to mapping each segment separately.

Subject: [dpdk-dev] [PATCH 18.11] vfio: map contiguous areas in one go

Currently, when we are creating DMA mappings for memory that's either external or is backed by hugepages in IOVA as PA mode, we assume that each page is necessarily discontiguous. This may not actually be the case, especially for external memory, where the user is able to create their own IOVA table and make it contiguous. This is a problem because VFIO has a limited number of DMA mappings, and it does not appear to concatenate them and treats each mapping as separate, even when they cover adjacent areas.
