I'm not saying that my patch is fully correct for all cases, but at least it
solves the USB case. USB uses an alignment of 1-byte for data.
Probably someone needs to sit down a think this through. Like it is now, it is
very scary with regard to USB!
Maybe it is time to create a new busdma tag flag? BUS_DMA_NOREALIGN?
If this flag is set, busdma should refuse to load the memory if the memory is
not aligned already to the given aligment in the DMA tag ?
