The destination address may be present in the source list, so we should
map the addresses from the source list first.
 Otherwise, if page corresponding to destination is not marked as write-
through (with regards to CPU cache), then mapping it with DMA_FROM_DEVICE
may lead to data loss, and finally to an incorrect result of calculations.
