Hi all, this series replaced the DMA_ATTR_NON_CONSISTENT flag to dma_alloc_attrs with a separate new dma_alloc_pages API, which is available on all platforms. In addition to cleaning up the convoluted code path, this ensures that other drivers that have asked for better support for non-coherent DMA to pages with incurring bounce buffering over can finally be properly supported.
As a follow up I plan to move the implementation of the DMA_ATTR_NO_KERNEL_MAPPING flag over to this framework as well, given that is also is a fundamentally non coherent allocation. The replacement for that flag would then return a struct page, as it is allowed to actually return pages without a kernel mapping as the name suggested (although most of the time they will actually have a kernel mapping..) In addition to the conversions of the existing non-coherent DMA users, I've also added a patch to convert the firewire ohci driver to use the new dma_alloc_pages API. The first patch is queued up for 5.9 in the media tree, but included here for completeness. A git tree is available here: git://git.infradead.org/users/hch/misc.git dma_alloc_pages Gitweb: http://git.infradead.org/users/hch/misc.git/shortlog/refs/heads/dma_alloc_pages Changes since v2: - fix up the patch reshuffle which wasn't quite correct - fix up a few commit messages Changes since v1: - rebased on the latests dma-mapping tree, which merged many of the cleanups - fix an argument passing typo in 53c700, caught by sparse - rename a few macro arguments in 53c700 - pass the right device to the DMA API in the lib82596 drivers - fix memory ownershiptransfers in sgiseeq - better document what a page in the direct kernel mapping means - split into dma_alloc_pages that returns a struct page and is in the direct mapping vs dma_alloc_noncoherent that can be vmapped - conver the firewire ohci driver to dma_alloc_pages Diffstat: _______________________________________________ iommu mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org https://lists.linuxfoundation.org/mailman/listinfo/iommu
