Subject: [PATCHv6 0/5] DMA Atomic pool for arm64


This is v6 of the series to add an atomic pool for arm64 and refactor some of
the arm dma_atomic code as well.

Russell, assuming you have no issues I'd like to get your Acked-by before
Catalin picks this up. As always, testing and reviews are appreiciated.


v6: Tweaked the commit text to clarify that arm is moving from
ioremap_page_range to map_vm_area and friends

v5: v4: Addressed comments from Thierry and Catalin. Updated map_vm_area call in
dma_common_pages_remap since the API changed.

v4: Simplified the logic in gen_pool_first_fit_order_align which makes the
data argument actually unused.

v3: Now a patch series due to refactoring of arm code. arm and arm64 now both
use genalloc for atomic pool management. genalloc extensions added.
DMA remapping code factored out as well.

v2: Various bug fixes pointed out by David and Ritesh (CMA dependency, swapping
coherent, noncoherent). I'm still not sure how to address the devicetree
suggestion by Will [1][2]. I added the devicetree mailing list this time around
to get more input on this.


Laura Abbott (5):
  lib/genalloc.c: Add power aligned algorithm
  lib/genalloc.c: Add genpool range check function
  common: dma-mapping: Introduce common remapping functions
  arm: use genalloc for the atomic pool
  arm64: Add atomic pool for non-coherent and CMA allocations.
