[Xen-devel] [PATCH v3 0/10] enable swiotlb-xen on arm and arm64

Hi all,
this patch series enables xen-swiotlb on arm and arm64.

Considering that all guests, including dom0, run on xen on arm with
second stage translation enabled, it follows that without an IOMMU no
guests could actually drive the hardware.

The solution for platforms without an IOMMU is to use swiotlb-xen,
adapted to autotranslate guests. swiotlb-xen provides a set of dma_ops
that can be used by Linux to setup a contiguous buffer in stage-2
addresses and use it for dma operations.
Basically Linux asks Xen to make a buffer contiguous and gets the
machine address for it. This buffer is going to be used by lib/swiotlb.c
to allocate bounce buffers.

The first 5 patches lay the groundwork on arm and arm64 to have
alternative dma_ops and swiotlb.

The sixth patch moves Xen initialization earlier so that we already know
whether we are running on Xen at the time of initializing dma_ops on the

The following patches adapt swiotlb-xen to autotranslate guests (guest
with second stage translation in hardware) and provide an arm
implementation of xen_create_contiguous_region.

Feedback is very welcome.


Changes in v3:
- add a patch to compile SWIOTLB without CONFIG_NEED_SG_DMA_LENGTH;
- add a patch to compile SWIOTLB_XEN without CONFIG_NEED_SG_DMA_LENGTH;
- arm/dma_capable: do not treat dma_mask as a limit;
- arm/dmabounce: keep using arm_dma_ops;
- add missing __init in xen_early_init declaration;
- many code style and name changes in swiotlb-xen.c;
- improve error checks in xen_dma_add_entry;
- warn on XENMEM_put_dma_buf failures.

Changes in v2:
- fixed a couple of errors in xen_bus_to_phys, xen_phys_to_bus and
