    Subject[077/264] xen-swiotlb: Fix wrong panic.
    3.1-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


    From: Konrad Rzeszutek Wilk <>

    commit ab2a47bd242d6cdcf6b2b64797f271c6f0a6d338 upstream.

    Propagate the baremetal git commit "swiotlb: fix wrong panic"
    (fba99fa38b023224680308a482e12a0eca87e4e1) in the Xen-SWIOTLB version.
    wherein swiotlb's map_page wrongly calls panic() when it can't find
    a buffer fit for device's dma mask. It should return an error instead.

    Devices with an odd dma mask (i.e. under 4G) like b44 network card hit
    this bug (the system crashes):

    If xen-swiotlb returns an error, b44 driver can use the own bouncing
