But whatever was written in the buffer is going to be overwritten anyway.

Unless I am mistaken the current situation is that the cache syncs are done
in both prepare and finish, regardless of the DMA direction.

I would keep that behavior to avoid introducing any unexpected regressions.

Then, if q->allow_cache_hint is set, then default to a cache sync (cache clean)
in the prepare for OUTPUT buffers and a cache sync (cache invalidate) in the
finish for CAPTURE buffers.

This also means that any drivers that want to access a buffer in between the
prepare...finish calls will need to do a begin/end_cpu_access. But that's a
separate matter.

Regards,

Hans
