Subject[PATCHv3 00/11] Implement V4L2_BUF_FLAG_NO_CACHE_* flags

V3 of the patchset, reshuffled and updated.

- Most notable changes:

a) Added a simple helper function vb2_queue_allows_cache_hints(),
which return true if queue has ->allow_cache_hints and when
->memory is VB2_MEMORY_MMAP.
That is - user space cache and memory consistency hints are now
specifically for MMAP buffers and queues that support hints.

b) Set V4L2_BUF_CAP_SUPPORTS_CACHE_HINTS capability bit only when queue
has ->allow_cache_hints and ->io_modes has VB2_MMAP bit set

c) Clear "incompatible" request's flags when queue does not permit
cache and memory consistency hints (IOW, when vb2_queue_allows_cache_hints()
return false)

Minor changes:


- Added more documentation and code comments.

Series Intro

This is a reworked version of the vb2 cache hints
support patch series which previsouly was developed by Sakari and
Laurent [0].

The patch set attempts to preserve the existing behvaiour - cache
sync is performed in ->prepare() and ->finish() (unless the buffer
is DMA exported). User space can request “default behavior” override
with cache management hints, which are handled on a per-buffer basis
and should be supplied with v4l2_buffer ->flags during buffer
preparation. There are two possible hints:

No cache sync on ->finish()

No cache sync on ->prepare()

In order to keep things on the safe side, we also require driver
to explicitly state which of its queues (if any) support user space
cache management hints (such queues should have ->allow_cache_hints
bit set).

The patch set also (to some extent) simplifies allocators' ->prepare()
and ->finish() callbacks. Namely, we move cache management decision
making to the upper - core - layer. For example, if, previously, we
would have something like this

if (buf->db_attach)

where each allocators' ->finish() callback would either bail
out (DMA exported buffer, for instance) or sync, now that "bail
out or sync" decision is made before we call into the allocator.

Along with cache management hints, user space is also able to
adjust queue's memory consistency attributes. Memory consistency
attribute (dma_attrs) is per-queue, yet it plays its role on the
allocator level, when we allocate buffers’ private memory (planes).
For the time being, only one consistency attribute is supported:


Sergey Senozhatsky (11):
videobuf2: add cache management members
videobuf2: handle V4L2 buffer cache flags
videobuf2: add V4L2_FLAG_MEMORY_NON_CONSISTENT flag
videobuf2: add queue memory consistency parameter
videobuf2: handle V4L2_FLAG_MEMORY_NON_CONSISTENT flag
videobuf2: factor out planes prepare/finish functions
videobuf2: do not sync caches when we are allowed not to
videobuf2: check ->synced flag in prepare() and finish()
videobuf2: add begin/end cpu_access callbacks to dma-contig
videobuf2: add begin/end cpu_access callbacks to dma-sg
videobuf2: don't test db_attach in dma-contig prepare and finish
