Subject[PATCH 3.16 325/346] ARM: 8617/1: dma: fix dma_max_pfn()
3.16.39-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Roger Quadros <>

commit d248220f0465b818887baa9829e691fe662b2c5e upstream.

Since commit 6ce0d2001692 ("ARM: dma: Use dma_pfn_offset for dma address translation"),
dma_to_pfn() already returns the PFN with the physical memory start offset
so we don't need to add it again.

This fixes USB mass storage lock-up problem on systems that can't do DMA
over the entire physical memory range (e.g.) Keystone 2 systems with 4GB RAM
can only do DMA over the first 2GB. [K2E-EVM].

What happens there is that without this patch SCSI layer sets a wrong
bounce buffer limit in scsi_calculate_bounce_limit() for the USB mass
storage device. dma_max_pfn() evaluates to 0x8fffff and bounce_limit
is set to 0x8fffff000 whereas maximum DMA'ble physical memory on Keystone 2
is 0x87fffffff. This results in non DMA'ble pages being given to the
USB controller and hence the lock-up.

NOTE: in the above case, USB-SCSI-device's dma_pfn_offset was showing as 0.
This should have really been 0x780000 as on K2e, LOWMEM_START is 0x80000000
and HIGHMEM_START is 0x800000000. DMA zone is 2GB so dma_max_pfn should be
0x87ffff. The incorrect dma_pfn_offset for the USB storage device is because
USB devices are not correctly inheriting the dma_pfn_offset from the
USB host controller. This will be fixed by a separate patch.
