Subject: [PATCH] ata: sata_rcar: Fix DMA boundary mask

Before commit 9495b7e92f716ab2 ("driver core: platform: Initialize
dma_parms for platform devices"), the R-Car SATA device didn't have DMA
parameters.  Hence the DMA boundary mask supplied by its driver was
silently ignored, as __scsi_init_queue() doesn't check the return value
of dma_set_seg_boundary(), and the default value of 0xffffffff was used.

Now the device has gained DMA parameters, the driver-supplied value is
used, and the following warning is printed on Salvator-XS:

    DMA-API: sata_rcar ee300000.sata: mapping sg segment across boundary [start=0x00000000ffffe000] [end=0x00000000ffffefff] [boundary=0x000000001ffffffe]
    WARNING: CPU: 5 PID: 38 at kernel/dma/debug.c:1233 debug_dma_map_sg+0x298/0x300

(the range of start/end values depend on whether IOMMU support is
 enabled or not)

The issue here is that SATA_RCAR_DMA_BOUNDARY doesn't have bit 0 set, so
any typical end value, which is odd, will trigger the check.

Fix this by increasing the DMA boundary value by 1.

Fixes: 8bfbeed58665dbbf ("sata_rcar: correct 'sata_rcar_sht'")
Fixes: 9495b7e92f716ab2 ("driver core: platform: Initialize dma_parms for platform devices")
Signed-off-by: Geert Uytterhoeven <>
As by default the DMA debug code prints the first error only, this issue
may be hidden on plain v5.7-rc5, where the FCP driver triggers a similar
warning.  Merging commit dd844fb8e50b12e6 ("media: platform: fcp: Set
appropriate DMA parameters") from the media tree fixes the FCP issue,
and exposes the SATA issue.

I added the second fixes tag because that commit is already being
backported to stable kernels, and this patch thus needs backporting,
