From: Laurentiu Tudor <laurentiu.tudor@nxp.com>

This series introduces a new dma api called dma_addr_to_phys_addr()
that converts a dma address to the corresponding physical address.
It consists in a new dma map op and the wrapper api, both added
in the first patch. The second patch adds an implementation in the
iommu dma glue code and wires it up. The third patch updates a driver
to use the new api.

Note: Originally i wanted to use the simpler api name dma_to_phys()
but it's already used in the dma direct apis. It would be great if
there would be a solution (unifying them?) to use this nicer naming.

Introduce a new dma map op called dma_addr_to_phys_addr() that converts
a dma address to the physical address backing it up and add wrapper for
it.

Convert this driver to usage of the newly introduced
dma_addr_to_phys_addr() DMA API. This will get rid of the unsupported
direct usage of iommu_iova_to_phys() API.

I'd really love it if there was a name which could encapsulate that this 
is *only* for extreme special cases of constrained descriptors/pagetable 
entries/etc. where there's simply no practical way to keep track of a 
CPU address alongside the DMA address, and the only option is this 
potentially-arbitrarily-complex operation (I mean, on some systems it 
may end up taking locks and poking hardware).

Either way it's tricky - much as I don't like adding an interface which 
is ripe for drivers to misuse, I also really don't want hacks like 
bdf95923086f shoved into other APIs to compensate, so on balance I'd 
probably consider this proposal ever so slightly the lesser evil.

I'd be inclined to name the internal callback something a bit snappier

Well that's not right, is it - remember why you had that namespace

Alright. Want me to also rename the wrapper to something like 
dma_get_phys_addr()? Sounds a bit nicer to me.

Ugh, correct. Don't know what I was thinking. Will rework the check.

We had an internal discussion over these points you are raising and 
Madalin (cc-ed) came up with another idea: instead of adding this prone 
to misuse api how about experimenting with a new dma unmap and dma sync 
variants that would return the physical address by calling the newly 
introduced dma map op. Something along these lines:
  * phys_addr_t dma_unmap_page_ret_phys(...)
  * phys_addr_t dma_unmap_single_ret_phys(...)
  * phys_addr_t dma_sync_single_for_cpu_ret_phys(...)
I'm thinking that this proposal should reduce the risks opened by the 
initial variant.
Please let me know what you think.

Thanks & Best Regards, Laurentiu

I'm not sure what the ret is supposed to mean, but I generally like
that idea better.  We also need to make sure there is an easy way
to figure out if these APIs are available, as they generally aren't
for any non-IOMMU API IOMMU drivers.

It was supposed to be short for "return" but given that I'm not good at 
naming stuff I'll just drop it.

I was really hoping to manage making them as generic as possible but 
anyway, I'll start working on a PoC and see how it turns out. This will 
probably happen sometime next next week as the following week I'll be 
traveling to a conference.

Hmm, how about something like "dma_unmap_*_desc" for the context of the 
mapped DMA address also being used as a descriptor token?

AFAICS, even a full implementation of these APIs would have to be 
capable of returning an indication that there is no valid physical 
address - e.g. if unmap is called with a bogus DMA address that was 
never mapped. At that point there'sseemingly no problem just 
implementing the trivial case on top of any existing unmap/sync 
callbacks for everyone. I'd imagine that drivers which want this aren't 
likely to run on the older architectures where the weird IOMMUs live, so 
they could probably just always treat failure as unexpected and fatal 
either way.

In fact, I'm now wondering whether it's likely to be common that users 
want the physical address specifically, or whether it would make sense 
to return the original VA/page, both for symmetry with the corresponding 
map calls and for the ease of being able to return NULL when necessary.

Robin.

That's sounds wonderful as it should make the code leaner in the drivers.
