[PATCH RFC 0/8] enable swiotlb-xen on arm and arm64
From: Stefano Stabellini
Date: Wed Jul 31 2013 - 13:45:20 EST
this patch series enables xen-swiotlb on arm and arm64.
Considering that all guests, including dom0, run on xen on arm with
second stage translation enabled, it follows that without an IOMMU no
guests could actually drive the hardware.
The solution for platforms without an IOMMU is to use swiotlb-xen,
adapted to autotranslate guests. swiotlb-xen provides a set of dma_ops
that can be used by Linux to setup a contiguous buffer in stage-2
addresses and use it for dma operations.
Basically Linux asks Xen to make a buffer contiguous and gets the
machine address for it. This buffer is going to be used by lib/swiotlb.c
to allocate bounce buffers.
The first 3 patches lay the groundwork on arm and arm64 to have
alternative dma_ops and swiotlb.
The forth patch moves Xen initialization earlier so that we already know
whether we are running on Xen at the time of initializing dma_ops on the
The following patches adapt swiotlb-xen to autotranslate guests (guest
with second stage translation in hardware) and provide an arm
implementation of xen_create_contiguous_region.
Feedback is very welcome.
Stefano Stabellini (8):
arm: make SWIOTLB available
arm: introduce a global dma_ops pointer
arm64: do not initialize arm64_swiotlb if dma_ops is already set
xen/arm,arm64: move Xen initialization earlier
xen: introduce XENMEM_get_dma_buf and xen_put_dma_buf
xen: make xen_create_contiguous_region return the dma address
swiotlb-xen: support autotranslate guests
xen/arm,arm64: enable SWIOTLB_XEN
