I know that you decrease the swiotlb size from 64MB (default) to 1MB,
however, pre-allocating 1MB is too wasteful to Wii?

Wii's EHCI controller connects to storage devices? If not, what you
need is the facility to do bouncing with dynamically allocated memory
such as the network stack, the block layer and

I think that we should have the common facility to do such.
