[PATCH v2 0/5] reserved-memory regions/CMA in devicetree, again

From: Marek Szyprowski
Date: Tue Feb 04 2014 - 07:09:59 EST

Hi all!

This is an updated version of the second attempt to add basic support
for dynamic allocation of memory reserved regions defined in device

The initial code for this feature were posted here [1], merged as commit
9d8eab7af79cb4ce2de5de39f82c455b1f796963 ("drivers: of: add
initialization code for dma reserved memory") and later reverted by
commit 1931ee143b0ab72924944bc06e363d837ba05063. For more information,
see [2]. Finally a new bindings has been proposed [3] and Josh
Cartwright a few days ago prepared some code which implements those
bindings [4]. This finally pushed me again to find some time to finish
this task and review the code. Josh agreed to give me the ownership of
this series to continue preparing them for mainline inclusion.

For more information please refer to the changlelog below.

- removed copying of the node name
- split shared-dma-pool handling into separate files (one for CMA and one
for dma_declare_coherent based implementations) for making the code easier
to understand
- added support for AMBA devices, changed prototypes to use struct decice
instead of struct platform_device
- renamed some functions to better match other names used in drivers/of/
- restructured the rest of the code a bit for better readability
- added 'reusable' property to exmaple linux,cma node in documentation
- exclusive dma (dma_coherent) is used for only handling 'shared-dma-pool'
regions without 'reusable' property and CMA is used only for handling
'shared-dma-pool' regions with 'reusable' property.
