This looks extreml ugly to me.  It seems like the typical use is to
store a pointer to a structure.  So what about making the direct
dma case follow that general scheme instead?

E.g. declare a

struct direct_dma_data {
	dma_addr_t	direct_dma_offset;

and have one normal instace of it, and one per weird cell device.
