Subject: [RFC][PATCH 0/2] Allow DMA BUF heaps to be loaded as modules
Date: Fri, 25 Oct 2019 23:48:32 +0000
Message-ID: <20191025234834.28214-1-john.stultz@linaro.org> (raw)

Now that the DMA BUF heaps core code has been queued, I wanted
to send out some of the pending changes that I've been working
on.

For use with Android and their GKI effort, it is desired that
DMA BUF heaps are able to be loaded as modules. This is required
for migrating vendors off of ION which was also recently changed
to support modules.

So this patch series simply provides the necessary exported
symbols and allows the system and CMA drivers to be built
as modules.

Due to the fact that dmabuf's allocated from a heap may
be in use for quite some time, there isn't a way to safely
unload the driver once it has been loaded. Thus these
drivers do no implement module_exit() functions and will
show up in lsmod as "[permanent]"

Feedback and thoughts on this would be greatly appreciated!

thanks
-john
