[PATCH] ccio_clear_io_tlb() don't need to compute io page numbera second time.

Hello Kyle,

In ccio-dma.c, I noticed that eventhought the prototype of the function ccio_clear_io_tlb() is:
static CCIO_INLINE void
ccio_clear_io_tlb(struct ioc *ioc, dma_addr_t iovp, size_t byte_cnt)

i.e. the second arg being iovp (afaik the io virtual page number) deduced from the iova (io virtual address)

it's so useless to:
iovp &= IOVP_MASK; /* clear offset bits, just want pagenum */

and the only place where it's called is:
ccio_clear_io_tlb(ioc, CCIO_IOVP(iova), saved_byte_cnt);

it's well an iovp given the macro definition:
#define CCIO_IOVP(iova) ((iova) & IOVP_MASK)

May I so suggest following patch:
