Subject[PATCH AUTOSEL 5.5 107/542] ath10k: Correct the DMA direction for management tx buffers
From: Rakesh Pillai <>

[ Upstream commit 6ba8b3b6bd772f575f7736c8fd893c6981fcce16 ]

The management packets, send to firmware via WMI, are
mapped using the direction DMA_TO_DEVICE. Currently in
case of wmi cleanup, these buffers are being unmapped
using an incorrect DMA direction. This can cause unwanted
behavior when the host driver is handling a restart
of the wlan firmware.

We might see a trace like below

[<ffffff8008098b18>] __dma_inv_area+0x28/0x58
[<ffffff8001176734>] ath10k_wmi_mgmt_tx_clean_up_pending+0x60/0xb0 [ath10k_core]

[<ffffff80080c36bc>] process_one_work+0x16c/0x31c

Fix the incorrect DMA direction during the wmi
management tx buffer cleanup.
