It doesn't had to do it. The PCI transaction will automatically invalidate

So any DMA on ia64 will flush the instruction caches?!


Or maybe, the host kernel will do it after the transaction completes? In our case the lack of zero-copy means the host is invalidating the wrong addresses (memcpy source) and leaving the real destination intact.
