The patch is correct.   r600_copy_blit() takes CPU pages as a
parameter and the r600_blit_*_copy() functions take bytes as a
parameter.  evergreen_copy_blit() needs a similar fix.

There may be other places where we are using the wrong page size for
GPU vs CPU pages.

drm_mm is basically a set of helper functions for managing address ranges.
