Subject[PATCH v5 0/4] riscv: implement Zicbom-based CMO instructions + the t-head variant
This series is based on the alternatives changes done in my svpbmt series
and thus also depends on Atish's isa-extension parsing series.

It implements using the cache-management instructions from the Zicbom-
extension to handle cache flush, etc actions on platforms needing them.

SoCs using cpu cores from T-Head like the Allwinne D1 implement a
different set of cache instructions. But while they are different,
instructions they provide the same functionality, so a variant can
easly hook into the existing alternatives mechanism on those.

An ongoing discussion is about the currently used pre-coded
instructions. Palmer's current thinking is that we should wait
until the relevant instructions have landed in binutils.

The main Zicbom instructions are in toolchains now and at least
Debian also carries a binutils snapshot with it, but the T-Head
variant still uses pre-coded instructions for now.

The series sits on top of my svpbmt fixup series, which
for example includes the conversion away from function pointers
for the check-functions. And also uses my nops-series.

A new dma-noncoherent property was added for the devicetree-specification
and dt-schema in:

changes in v5:
- beautify of_dma_is_coherent as suggested by Christoph Hellwig
- WARN_TAINT when ARCH_DMA_MINALIGN smaller than riscv,cbom-block-size
(similar to how arm64 does this)
- add a function to track if non-coherent handling is available
- WARN_TAINT if a device is non-coherent but no non-coherent handling
- use clean instead of inval in arch_sync_dma_for_device:DMA_FROM_DEVICE
hopefully I understood
correctly in this

changes in v4:
- modify of_dma_is_coherent() also handle coherent system
with maybe noncoherent devices
- move Zicbom to use real instructions
- split off the actual dma-noncoherent code from the Zicbom
- Don't assumes devices are non-coherent, instead default to
coherent and require the non-coherent ones to be marked
- fix used cache addresses
- drop some unused headers from dma-noncoherent.c
- move unsigned long cast when calling ALT_CMO_OP
- remove unneeded memset-0
- use flush instead of inval in arch_sync_dma_for_cpu()
- depend on !XIP_KERNEL
- trim some line lengths
- improve Kconfig description

changes in v3:
- rebase onto 5.19-rc1 + svpbmt-fixup-series
- adapt wording for block-size binding
- include asm/cacheflush.h into dma-noncoherent to fix the
no-prototype error clang seems to generate
- use __nops macro for readability
- add some received tags
- add a0 to the clobber list

changes in v2:
- cbom-block-size is hardware-specific and comes from firmware
- update Kconfig name to use the ISA extension name
- select the ALTERNATIVES symbol when enabled
- shorten the line lengths of the errata-assembly

Heiko Stuebner (4):
of: also handle dma-noncoherent in of_dma_is_coherent()
dt-bindings: riscv: document cbom-block-size
riscv: Implement Zicbom-based cache management operations
riscv: implement cache-management errata for T-Head SoCs
