It seems everone wants their own version of map_mem(..). This probably should be provided for them instead.

It exists and is called map_physical_memory(). This map_mem() function obviously only exists because people copy from each other, or have their own preferences :-)

They are not really the same, map_mem is a wrapper for a common use of map_physical_memory. So it does definatly have it's use. IMHO I think it would be beneficial to have one function to trace/debug/optimize. Leaving it for you to decide though.

map_physical_memory() only has one use. map_mem() does nothing more than call it, and take care of the physical offset - which would be one extra line.
