[PATCH v3] dma-mapping: skip USB devices when configuring DMA during probe

From: Johan Hovold
Date: Thu Aug 03 2017 - 11:54:06 EST

USB devices use the DMA mask and offset of the controller, which have
already been setup when a device is probed. Note that modifying the
DMA mask of a USB device would change the mask for the controller (and
all devices on the bus) as the mask is literally shared.

Since commit 2bf698671205 ("USB: of: fix root-hub device-tree node
handling"), of_dma_configure() would be called also for root hubs, which
use the device node of the controller. A separate, long-standing bug
that makes of_dma_configure() generate a 30-bit DMA mask from the RPI3's
"dma-ranges" would thus set a broken mask also for the controller. This
in turn prevents USB devices from enumerating when control transfers

dwc2 3f980000.usb: Cannot do DMA to address 0x000000003a166a00

Note that the aforementioned DMA-mask bug was benign for the HCD itself
as the dwc2 driver overwrites the mask previously set by
of_dma_configure() for the platform device in its probe callback. The
mask would only later get corrupted when the root-hub child device was

Fix this, and similar future problems, by adding a flag to struct device
which prevents driver core from calling dma_configure() during probe and
making sure it is set for USB devices.

- add flag to struct device to prevent DMA configuration during probe instead
of checking for the USB bus type, which is not available when USB is built
as a module as noted by Alan
- drop moderated rpi list from CC

- amend commit message and point out that the long-standing 30-bit DMA-mask
bug was benign to the dwc2 HCD itself (Robin)
- add and use a new dev_is_usb() helper (Robin)
