Hello!

This is yet another quick update on the patchset which replaces custom 
consistent dma regions usage in dma-mapping framework in favour of
generic vmalloc areas created on demand for each allocation. The main
purpose for this patchset is to remove 2MiB limit of dma
coherent/writecombine allocations.

This version addresses a few minor issues pointed by Minchan Kim.

This patch is based on vanilla v3.5 release.

Best regards

Changelog:

v5:
- fixed another minor issues pointed by Minchan Kim: added more comments
  here and there, changed pr_err() + stack_dump() to WARN(), added a fix
  for no-MMU systems

v4: http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.linux.kernel.mm/80906
- replaced arch-independent VM_DMA flag with ARM-specific
  VM_ARM_DMA_CONSISTENT flag

v3: http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.linux.kernel.mm/80028
- rebased onto v3.4-rc2: added support for IOMMU-aware implementation 
  of dma-mapping calls, unified with CMA coherent dma pool
- implemented changes requested by Minchan Kim: added more checks for
  vmarea->flags & VM_DMA, renamed some variables, removed obsole locks,
  squashed find_vm_area() exporting patch into the main redesign patch 

v2: http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.linux.kernel.mm/78563
- added support for atomic allocations (served from preallocated pool)
- minor cleanup here and there
- rebased onto v3.4-rc7

v1: http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.linux.kernel.mm/76703
- initial version
