Subject[PATCH 0/5] Switchtec MRPC DMA mode support
Date
Hi, Everyone,

This patch series adds support for the Switchtec MRPC DMA mode.

Switchtec switches supports 2 MRPC interaction modes: MRPC normal mode and
MRPC DMA mode, a new feature in the latest firmware versions. MRPC normal
mode requires the host to read the MRPC command status and output data.
In MRPC DMA mode the command status and output data are pushed directly to
host memory and issues an interrupt upon completion. The advantage of MRPC
DMA mode is avoiding potential high latency response from the Memory Read
TLP.

Additionally, we've made the following changes:

* Improve the efficiency of filling MRPC Input buffer by enabling write
combining on MRPC region of BAR
* Software workaround for delay responded Memory READ TLPs that access
the BAR
* And several bug fixes

Regards,
Wesley
