For PCIe, setting dma-coherent in the DT nodes wouldn't have any effect
yet. We have of_dma_configure() being called for platform devices but it
won't work for PCIe which are probed at run-time (nor for AMBA which
require an additional patch).

So for arm64 currently we have some hooks in dma-mapping.c to intercept
when a device is added to a bus. What I need to do though is check
recursively whether the parent (bus) had the 'dma-coherent' property
(pointed out by Jon). I think something like this would do (not tested):


After this, we need to a bus notifier for PCIe as well. Since I don't
think we have an of_node for a PCI device, we would need to check
recursively on the parent device rather than the parent node until we
find an OF node with the 'dma-coherent' property.

We've got a patch now that I posted internally and we've tested. I've
asked Mark Salter to send it upstream (but hey, you'll probably just
want to switch the default over to recurse up the tree and then simply
add a new notifier register for pci_bus_type). For this stuff to work,
we need v10 of the APM X-Gene patches because (as I noticed earlier when
going through their code and testing on a board with an actual card -
and a modified devicetree node for the PCI root) that's the point they
add a call to setup the root of_nodes correctly via pci_scan_root_bus.
Prior to that the trivially obvious patch for dma-coherent doesn't work.
Today, there are two platform PCIe devices that do it right, plus the
latest APM rev of their driver just posted.

Jon.
