Subject[PATCH] [7/7] Allow swiotlb to move block data bouncing to the block layer
Date

The block layer is generally in a better position to bounce
than swiotlb because it is allowed to sleep at
the right places. swiotlb cannot do that and is thus more prone
to panic and failing on overflow.

With the mask allocator pool block layer bouncing and swiotlb
allocate from the same pool, so it's quite possible to shift
some of the bounce burden to the block layer.

This patch adds a new variable to set the bounce threshold
for 64bit hosts and sets it to zero for swiotlb. This has
the effect to always doing the data bounces in the block layer
for swiotlb, assuming the block driver set the correct
bounce pfn. If it forgets that only sets its dma mask
swiotlb will still take the burden.
