Wouldn't that be wrong? AFAICS `off` is the offset of the file (source) and we
zero it here so just the first iteration considers it as a page offset -
next iterations are expected to copy whole pages or the remaining of the

Encapsulating the dest offset calculation inside iosys_map with an iter
was a way to avoid this kind of bugs in places that need to keep track
of both source and dest.

Anyway, I disagree and commit here. I will change to map_off and think
about the other cases.

There are also some more complex cases in which copying the map
and work with it avoids other bugs that I will have to think about:

	- patch 9 ("drm/i915/guc: Convert engine record to
	  iosys_map"): as you already noticed we delegate its update to
	  other compilation unit

	- patch 11 ("drm/i915/guc: Convert golden context prep to iosys_map"):
	  info_map, which can point either to the real buffer (in system
	  or IO memory) or to a temporary buffer (system memory)

	- patch 17: it needs to write to 2 parts of struct: passing
	  different offsets depending on the call is IMO more error
	  prone than making sure we are working with the right variable.
