Hi!

We have a IXP4xx-based board which has an e100 NIC. During bootup, we
trigger a BUG_ON in dmabounce.c because the mapped direction doesn't
match the synced one. e100.c maps buffers bidirectional, but the sync
is done fromdevice.

Krzysztof HaƂasa sent a patch 2012-09-20 which excludes bidirectional
mappings from the sync BUG_ONs, as seen below. We need that patch for
our board to boot. The patch in full is available at

  http://patchwork.ozlabs.org/patch/185486/

This was never applied, but also received no comments. Does the patch
make sense?


For further reference, the e100 BUG_ON was discussed here a few years
ago:

  http://comments.gmane.org/gmane.linux.ports.arm.kernel/48922

there is a e100 patch there from Jesse Brandeburg which changes the
mapping, however with that patch the NIC stops receiving traffic after
a while.

Thanks,
// Simon
