Yes.  I think we really want a little helper that checks the mapping
and the offset.  That also gives us the opportunity to document the
semantics.

I think we should just pull in the helper and conversions through
some tree after all iomap bits are merged.  It might as well be
the iomap tree as that seems to the place for file system read/write
infrastructure these days.
