Subject[PATCH 5.5 139/367] ARM: dma-api: fix max_pfn off-by-one error in __dma_supported()
From: Chen-Yu Tsai <>

commit f3cc4e1d44a813a0685f2e558b78ace3db559722 upstream.

max_pfn, as set in arch/arm/mm/init.c:

static void __init find_limits(unsigned long *min,
unsigned long *max_low,
unsigned long *max_high)
*max_low = PFN_DOWN(memblock_get_current_limit());
*min = PFN_UP(memblock_start_of_DRAM());
*max_high = PFN_DOWN(memblock_end_of_DRAM());

with memblock_end_of_DRAM() pointing to the next byte after DRAM. As
such, max_pfn points to the PFN after the end of DRAM.

Thus when using max_pfn to check DMA masks, we should subtract one when
checking DMA ranges against it.

Commit 8bf1268f48ad ("ARM: dma-api: fix off-by-one error in
__dma_supported()") fixed the same issue, but missed this spot.

This issue was found while working on the sun4i-csi v4l2 driver on the
Allwinner R40 SoC. On Allwinner SoCs, DRAM is offset at 0x40000000, and
we are starting to use of_dma_configure() with the "dma-ranges" property
in the device tree to have the DMA API handle the offset.

In this particular instance, dma-ranges was set to the same range as the
actual available (2 GiB) DRAM. The following error appeared when the
driver attempted to allocate a buffer:

sun4i-csi 1c09000.csi: Coherent DMA mask 0x7fffffff (pfn 0x40000-0xc0000)
covers a smaller range of system memory than the DMA zone pfn 0x0-0xc0001
sun4i-csi 1c09000.csi: dma_alloc_coherent of size 307200 failed

Fixing the off-by-one error makes things work.

Fixes: 11a5aa32562e ("ARM: dma-mapping: check DMA mask against available memory")
Fixes: 9f28cde0bc64 ("ARM: another fix for the DMA mapping checks")
Fixes: ab746573c405 ("ARM: dma-mapping: allow larger DMA mask than supported")
