Subject: 回复: 回复: 回复: [External]Re: An cma optimization patch is used for cma_[alloc|free].

Hi Robin, David
	Thank you for your guidance very much, we'll go ahead and see if some heap drivers can use carveout heap instead.

Thanks.

Best Regards,

If you just want dma_alloc_coherent() to work automatically from a carveout in the same manner as CMA, without having to stick
of_reserved_mem_device_init() calls everywhere to make drivers aware of per-device carveouts, then [1] is probably what you want.

If it's specifically dma-buf heaps that you're interested in, then hacking the common CMA code to make the CMA heap behave like a carveout heap is definitely the wrong approach - just implement a carveout heap properly. It seems the only reason that hasn't ported over from ION is that nobody's needed it yet[2].

Robin.
