That should be okay though, if you have no attachments (or all
attachments are IO-coherent) then there is no need for cache
maintenance. Unless you mean a sequence where a non-io-coherent device
is attached later after data has already been written. Does that
sequence need supporting? DMA-BUF doesn't have to allocate the backing
memory until map_dma_buf() time, and that should only happen after all
the devices have attached so it can know where to put the buffer. So we
shouldn't expect any CPU access to buffers before all the devices are
attached and mapped, right?

If I am not doing any CPU access then why do I need CPU cache
maintenance on the buffer?
