Where do you take care of those potential offsets today ? Or do you
simply ignore the offsets and map the entire page ?

Seems like omap's iommu (mostly) rejects unaligned pa addresses, see:

4abb761749abfb4ec403e4054f9dae2ee604e54f "omap iommu: Reject unaligned
addresses at setting page table entry"

(this doesn't seem to cover 4KB entries though, only large pages,
sections and super sections)

Sure, i'll send it.
