Bharat Bhushan - June 27, 2012, 5:28 a.m.
From: Bharat Bhushan <Bharat.Bhushan@freescale.com>

The caam job rings (input/output job ring) are allocated using
dma_map_single(). These job rings can be visualized as the ring
buffers in which the jobs are en-queued/de-queued. The s/w enqueues
the jobs in input job ring which h/w dequeues and after processing
it copies the jobs in output job ring. Software then de-queues the
job from output ring. Using dma_map/unmap_single() is not preferred
way to allocate memory for this type of requirements because this
adds un-necessary complexity.

Example, if bounce buffer (SWIOTLB) will get used then to make any
change visible in this memory to other processing unit requires
dmap_unmap_single() or dma_sync_single_for_cpu/device(). The
dma_unmap_single() can not be used as this will free the bounce
buffer, this will require changing the job rings on running system
and I seriously doubt that it will be not possible or very complex
to implement. Also using dma_sync_single_for_cpu/device() will also
add unnecessary complexity.

The simple and preferred way is using dma_alloc_coherent() for these
type of memory requirements.

This resolves the Linux boot crash issue when "swiotlb=force" is set
in bootargs on systems which have memory more than 4G.
