[PATCH v1 0/4] msm/gpu/a6xx: use the DMA-API for GMU memory allocations

From: Jordan Crouse
Date: Wed Feb 19 2020 - 16:33:08 EST

When CONFIG_INIT_ON_ALLOC_DEFAULT_ON the GMU memory allocator runs afoul of
cache coherency issues because it is mapped as write-combine without clearing
the cache after it was zeroed.

Rather than duplicate the hacky workaround we use in the GEM allocator for the
same reason it turns out that we don't need to have a bespoke memory allocator
for the GMU anyway. It uses a flat, global address space and there are only
two relatively minor allocations anyway. In short, this is essentially what the
DMA API was created for so replace a bunch of memory management code with two
calls to allocate and free DMA memory and we're fine.

The only wrinkle is that the memory allocations need to be in a very specific
location in the GMU virtual address space so in order to get the iova allocator
to do the right thing we need to specify the dma-ranges property in the device
tree for the GMU node. Since we've not yet converted the GMU bindings over to
YAML two patches quickly turn into four but at the end of it we have at least
one bindings file converted to YAML and 99 less lines of code to worry about.
