Subject[PATCH 3.16 005/148] net: davinci_cpdma: use dma_addr_t for DMA address
3.16.82-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Arnd Bergmann <>

commit 84092996673211f16ef3b942a191d7952e9dfea9 upstream.

The davinci_cpdma mixes up physical addresses as seen from the CPU
and DMA addresses as seen from a DMA master, since it can operate
on both normal memory or an on-chip buffer. If dma_addr_t is
different from phys_addr_t, this means we get a compile-time warning
about the type mismatch:

ethernet/ti/davinci_cpdma.c: In function 'cpdma_desc_pool_create':
ethernet/ti/davinci_cpdma.c:182:48: error: passing argument 3 of 'dma_alloc_coherent' from incompatible pointer type [-Werror=incompatible-pointer-types]
pool->cpumap = dma_alloc_coherent(dev, size, &pool->phys,
In file included from ethernet/ti/davinci_cpdma.c:21:0:
dma-mapping.h:398:21: note: expected 'dma_addr_t * {aka long long unsigned int *}' but argument is of type 'phys_addr_t * {aka unsigned int *}'
static inline void *dma_alloc_coherent(struct device *dev, size_t size,

This slightly restructures the code so the address we use for
mapping RAM into a DMA address is always a dma_addr_t, avoiding
the warning. The code is correct even if both types are 32-bit
because the DMA master in this device only supports 32-bit addressing
anyway, independent of the types that are used.

We still assign this value to pool->phys, and that is wrong if
the driver is ever used with an IOMMU, but that value appears to
be never used, so there is no problem really. I've added a couple
of comments about where we do things that are slightly violating
the API.
