... and in doing so, I realised I still have a question about this.

If a CPU is writing to a zero-initialised non-cacheable buffer in memory
and does something like:

	buffer[0] = 1;
	dma_wmb();	// DMB OSHST
	buffer[64] = 1;

would a non-coherent device reading this be able to see buffer[64] == 1
but buffer[0] = 0? In other words, do we need to upgrade the dmb_* barriers
as well as the I/O accessors, or are they still ordered by the bus fabric
because all of the accesses are going to the DDR?

Will
