Subject[PATCH 0/2] iommu/arm: Add support for non-coherent page tables
Date
As discussed in the Qcom system cache support thread [1], it is
imperative that we enable the support for non-cacheable page tables
for SMMU implementations for which removing snoop latency on walks
by making mappings as non-cacheable, outweighs the cost of cache
maintenance on PTE updates.

This series adds a new SMMU device tree option to let the particular
SMMU configuration setup cacheable or non-cacheable mappings for
page-tables out of box. We set a new quirk for i/o page tables -
IO_PGTABLE_QUIRK_NON_COHERENT, that lets us set different TCR
configurations.

This quirk enables the non-cacheable page tables for all masters
sitting on SMMU. Should this control be available per smmu_domain
as each master may have a different perf requirement?
Enabling this for the entire SMMU may not be desirable for all
masters.
