This is a snapshot of my work-in-progress on DMA-mapping framework
redesign. All these works are a preparation for adding support for IOMMU

DMA-mapping patches have been rebased onto Linux v3.1-rc4 kernel, what
required resolving a bunch of confilcts in the code. The patches have
been heavily tested and all bugs found in the initial version have been

Here is the link to the initial version of the DMA-mapping redesign patches:

- merge the patches with CMA patches and respective changes in
  DMA-mapping framework
- start the discussion about chaning alloc_coherent into alloc_attrs in
dma_map_ops structure.

The proof-of-concept IOMMU mapper for DMA-mapping will follow. In next 2
weeks I will be on holidays, so I decided not to delay these patch
anymore longer.
