Subject[RFC PATCH v1 0/6] Resolve unwanted DMA backing with IOMMU

There is a trouble on ARM with DMA allocations made by device drivers,
the trouble is that DMA allocations are getting implicitly backed with
IOMMU mapping by the driver core if IOMMU presents in a system and IOMMU
could handle device. This is an undesired behaviour for drivers that
manage IOMMU by themselves, like NVIDIA Tegra GPU driver. On arm32 the
implicit backing happens if CONFIG_ARM_DMA_USE_IOMMU=y (multiplatform
kernel configuration), on arm64 it happens if IOMMU domain type for a
device is equal to IOMMU_DOMAIN_DMA.

The proposed solution adds a new option to the base device driver
structure that allows device drivers to explicitly convey to the drivers
core that the implicit IOMMU backing for devices must not happen.

Dmitry Osipenko (6):
driver core: Add option for disabling of backing devices DMA with
of/device: Don't back devices DMA with IOMMU if that's undesired by
drm/tegra: Avoid implicit DMA backing with IOMMU
gpu: host1x: Avoid implicit DMA backing with IOMMU
drm/nouveau: tegra: Universally avoid implicit DMA backing with IOMMU
Revert "drm/nouveau: tegra: Detach from ARM DMA/IOMMU mapping"
