On Mon,Is there a reason why Ralf's original approach was not workable?

It doesn't work with HIGHMEM + cache aliasing. It also uses cache flush (blast_dcache) to buffer instead of cache invalidate after read I/O is completed.


I suspect that reimplementing the *_kernel_vmap_range functions using
_dma_cache_* would result in a double L2 flush on the same memory
regions on systems with cache aliases, and an unnecessary L1+L2 flush
on systems without aliases.

Good point. I put that to set it working. Now, after your comment, I think it has sense to try with L1 only.
