Subject: [PATCH v2 0/5] Allow compile-testing NO_DMA (core)
Date: Fri, 16 Mar 2018 14:25:39 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <1521206744-1504-1-git-send-email-geert@linux-m68k.org> (raw)

	Hi all,

If NO_DMA=y, get_dma_ops() returns a reference to the non-existing
symbol bad_dma_ops, thus causing a link failure if it is ever used.

The intention of this is twofold:
  1. To catch users of the DMA API on systems that do no support the DMA
     mapping API,
  2. To avoid building drivers that cannot work on such systems anyway.

However, the disadvantage is that we have to keep on adding dependencies
on HAS_DMA all over the place.

Thanks to the COMPILE_TEST symbol, lots of drivers now depend on one or
more platform dependencies (that imply HAS_DMA) || COMPILE_TEST, thus
already covering intention #2.  Having to add an explicit dependency on
HAS_DMA here is cumbersome, and hinders compile-testing.

Hence I think the time is ripe to reconsider the link failure.
This patch series:
  - Changes get_dma_ops() to return NULL instead,
  - Adds a few more dummies to enable compile-testing.

A follow-up patch series will:
  - Remove dependencies on HAS_DMA for symbols that already have
    platform dependencies implying HAS_DMA.

Changes compared to v1:
  - Add Reviewed-by, Acked-by,
  - Group NO_DMA-stubs for the DMA pool API under a single #ifdef,
  - Split the big Kconfig patch in per-subsystem patches, split-off in a
    follow-up series.

This series is against v4.16-rc5. It can also be found at
https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/geert/linux-m68k.git/log/?h=no-dma-compile-testing-v2

It has been compile-tested with allmodconfig and allyesconfig for
m68k/sun3, and has received attention from the kbuild test robot.

Thanks!
