I.e. ~90% of this patch set seems to be just mechanically dropping

Which is was 90%. By lines changed most actually is the diffs for
the cache flushing.
Would it make sense to split this patch set into a few bits: one to
drop all the useless BUG_ON()s, one to convert all the open coded
stuff to accessor functions, then another to do the actual page-less
Without the ifs the BUG_ON() actually are useful to assert we
never feed the sort of physical addresses we can't otherwise support,
so I don't think that part is doable.
A simple series to make more use of sg_phys and add sg_pfn might
still be useful, though.
