Thanks a lot for your feedback.

Good point, I believe it shouldn't be called from atomic context since both
the dma_buf_vunmap() and dma_buf_unmap_attachment() functions can sleep.

I see.

Ok, I can take a look to this and handle the finish() and unmap_dmabuf()
out of interrupt context as you suggested.
