SubjectRe: PCI DMA to small buffers on cache-incoherent arch
   From: Oliver Neukum <>

A sparc64 is unlikely to be short on memory, or is it ?
What's wrong with always aligning on 128 bytes on sparc64 ?
A runtime check would be expensive.

Maybe on arch FOO, target X needs no alignment when using PCI
controller Y, but for PCI controller Z it does need alignment.
