Subject: [PATCH v3.18-rc3] drm: msm: Allow exported dma-bufs to be mapped

Currently msm does not implement gem_prime_mmap. Without this it is not
possible to draw onto a dma-buf from another process (making its very hard
to implement the Android rendering model).

Implementing this mostly just providing some boilerplate code. However in
addition to providing the implementation of mmap itself we must also
interfere with the flags during the export. Without this the mmap() will
fail the permission checks early in the syscall handling and
msm_gem_prime_mmap() will never be called.

Signed-off-by: Daniel Thompson <>

    I've tested this both with a rather hacked about Android userspace
    and with a fairly small test case run from debian. Both currently use
    dumb buffers.
    Thanks to Benjamin for his help in finding this bit of code.
