    SubjectRe: [PATCH 4/7] swiotlb: Allow arch override of address_needs_mapping

    Becky's patches of last week also added __weak annotations to
    swiotlb_bus_to_virt, virt_to_bus and bus_to_phys; added the hwdev
    parameter to swiotlb_bus_to_phys; and added a weak
    swiotlb_arch_address_needs_mapping. I assume that was needed because
    powerpc needs non-trivial implementations for those functions.

    As I said, Becky's patches added hooks in many of the places we added
    them for Xen. I assume that's because powerpc needs them; I have not
    seen the arch/powerpc side of those changes.
