[RFC PATCH 11/11] powerpc/svm: Increase SWIOTLB buffer size

From: Thiago Jung Bauermann
Date: Fri Aug 24 2018 - 12:26:59 EST

From: Anshuman Khandual <khandual@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

SWIOTLB buffer default size (64MB) is not enough for large sequential write
operations which eventually leads to kernel crash like here.

virtio-pci 0000:00:05.0: swiotlb buffer is full (sz: 327680 bytes)
virtio-pci 0000:00:05.0: DMA: Out of SW-IOMMU space for 327680 bytes
Kernel panic - not syncing: DMA: Random memory could be DMA read
CPU: 12 PID: 3985 Comm: mkfs.ext4 Not tainted 4.18.0-rc4+ #285

Increase the SWIOTLB size to 1GB on Ultravisor based secure guests.
