[PATCH v4 3/6] common: DMA-mapping: add DMA_ATTR_PRIVILEGED attribute
From: Mitchel Humpherys
Date: Mon Jul 25 2016 - 15:16:38 EST
This patch adds the DMA_ATTR_PRIVILEGED attribute to the DMA-mapping
Some advanced peripherals such as remote processors and GPUs perform
accesses to DMA buffers in both privileged "supervisor" and unprivileged
"user" modes. This attribute is used to indicate to the DMA-mapping
subsystem that the buffer is fully accessible at the elevated privilege
level (and ideally inaccessible or at least read-only at the

- Reworked against the new dma attrs format
- Not worrying about executability.
