Subject: [PATCH] usbip: Implement map_urb_for_dma function for vhci to skip dma mapping
Date: Tue, 18 Jun 2019 23:28:17 +0900
Message-ID: <> (raw)

vhci doesn’t do dma for remote device. Actually, the real dma
operation is done by network card driver. So, vhci doesn’t use and
need dma address of transfer buffer of urb.

But hcd provides dma mapping function by defualt in usb_hcd_submit_urb()
and it causes unnecessary dma mapping which will be done again at
NIC driver and it wastes CPU cycles. So, implement map_urb_for_dma
function for vhci in order to skip the dma mapping procedure.
