Subject: Re: [Intel-gfx] [PATCH 1/4] drm: add helper to walk a dma scatter
 list a page at a time

Hi Imre!

Nice patch, but I think this would make a rather nice addition to the
common scatterlist api in scatterlist.h, maybe called sg_page_iter.
There's already another helper which does cpu mappings, but it has a
different use-case (gives you the page mapped, which we don't neeed and
can cope with not page-aligned sg tables). With dma-buf using sg tables I
expect more users of such a sg page iterator to pop up. Most possible
users of this will hang around on linaro-mm-sig, so please also cc that
besides the usual suspects.

Cheers, Daniel

Imo using sg_pfn_offset (i.e. sg_offset >> PAGE_SIZE) would make it
clearer that this is all about iterating page-aligned sg tables.

And adding a WARN_ON(sg->legnth & ~PAGE_MASK); here would enforce that.

Again, for the initialization I'd go with page numbers, not an offset in
bytes.
