      [PATCH] arm: allow for arch-specific IOREMAP_MAX_ORDER · fd195c49
      Deepak Saxena authored
      Version 6 of the ARM architecture introduces the concept of 16MB pages
      (supersections) and 36-bit (40-bit actually, but nobody uses this) physical
      addresses.  36-bit addressed memory and I/O and ARMv6 can only be mapped
      using supersections and the requirement on these is that both virtual and
      physical addresses be 16MB aligned.  In trying to add support for ioremap()
      of 36-bit I/O, we run into the issue that get_vm_area() allows for a
      maximum of 512K alignment via the IOREMAP_MAX_ORDER constant.  To work
      around this, we can:
      - Allocate a larger VM area than needed (size + (1ul << IOREMAP_MAX_ORDER))
        and then align the pointer ourselves, but this ends up with 512K of
        wasted VM per ioremap().
      - Provide a new __get_vm_area_aligned() API and make __get_vm_area() sit
        on top of this. I did this and it works but I don't like the idea
        adding another VM API just for this one case.
      - My preferred solution which is to allow the architecture to override
        the IOREMAP_MAX_ORDER constant with it's own version.

      Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history,
      even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git
      archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about
      3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early
      git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good
      infrastructure for it.
      Let it rip!
