[Qemu-devel] [PATCH v2 1/4] target-arm: Declare virtio-mmio as dma-coher

From: Alexander Graf
Subject: [Qemu-devel] [PATCH v2 1/4] target-arm: Declare virtio-mmio as dma-coherent in dt
Date: Thu, 9 Feb 2017 13:53:27 +0100

QEMU emulated hardware is always dma coherent with its guest. We do
annotate that correctly on the PCI host controller, but left out

Recent kernels have started to interpret that flag rather than take
dma coherency as granted with virtio-mmio. While that is considered
a kernel bug, as it breaks previously working systems, it showed that
our dt description is incomplete.

This patch adds the respective marker that allows guest OSs to evaluate
that our virtio-mmio devices are indeed cache coherent.
