| Commit 9adc5374 ('common: dma-mapping: introduce mmap method') added a
| generic method for implementing mmap user call to dma_map_ops structure.
| This patch converts ARM and PowerPC architectures (the only providers of
| dma_mmap_coherent/dma_mmap_writecombine calls) to use this generic
| dma_map_ops based call and adds a generic cross architecture
| definition for dma_mmap_attrs, dma_mmap_coherent, dma_mmap_writecombine
| functions.
| The generic mmap virt_to_page-based fallback implementation is provided for
| architectures which don't provide their own implementation for mmap method.

| Hello,
| This patch is a continuation of my works on dma-mapping cleanup and
| unification. Previous works (commit 58bca4a8fa ('Merge branch
| 'for-linus' of git://git.linaro.org/people/mszyprowski/linux-dma-mapping')
| has been merged to v3.4-rc2. Now I've focuses on providing implementation
| for all architectures so the drivers and some cross-architecture common
| helpers (like for example videobuf2) can start using this new api.
| I'm not 100% sure if the PowerPC changes are correct. The cases of
| dma_iommu_ops and vio_dma_mapping_ops are a bit suspicious for me, but I
| have no way to test and check if my changes works for that hardware.
| Best regards
