use exact allocation for dma coherent memory

I once wrote a Smatch check based on a commit message that said we can't
pass dma_alloc_coherent() pointers to virt_to_phys().  But then I never
felt like I understood the rules enough to actually report the warnings
as bugs.

drivers/platform/x86/dcdbas.c:108 smi_data_buf_realloc() error: 'buf' came from dma_alloc_coherent() so we can't do virt_to_phys()
drivers/net/caif/caif_virtio.c:414 cfv_create_genpool() error: 'cfv->alloc_addr' came from dma_alloc_coherent() so we can't do virt_to_phys()
drivers/infiniband/hw/cxgb4/qp.c:135 alloc_host_sq() error: 'sq->queue' came from dma_alloc_coherent() so we can't do virt_to_phys()
drivers/infiniband/hw/cxgb4/qp.c:272 create_qp() error: 'wq->rq.queue' came from dma_alloc_coherent() so we can't do virt_to_phys()
drivers/infiniband/hw/cxgb4/qp.c:2628 alloc_srq_queue() error: 'wq->queue' came from dma_alloc_coherent() so we can't do virt_to_phys()
drivers/infiniband/hw/ocrdma/ocrdma_verbs.c:494 ocrdma_alloc_ucontext() error: 'ctx->ah_tbl.va' came from dma_alloc_coherent() so we can't do virt_to_phys()

drivers/infiniband/hw/cxgb4/qp.c
   129  static int alloc_host_sq(struct c4iw_rdev *rdev, struct t4_sq *sq)
   130  {
   131          sq->queue = dma_alloc_coherent(&(rdev->lldi.pdev->dev), sq->memsize,
   132                                         &(sq->dma_addr), GFP_KERNEL);
   133          if (!sq->queue)
   134                  return -ENOMEM;
   135          sq->phys_addr = virt_to_phys(sq->queue);
   136          dma_unmap_addr_set(sq, mapping, sq->dma_addr);
   137          return 0;
   138  }

Is this a bug?
