For the whole series:

Tested-by: Barry Song <Baohua.Song@csr.com>

and i also write a simple kernel helper to test the CMA:

_dev_info(cma_dev, "free virt: %p phys: %p\n", dma_virt[i], (void

dma_virt[i] = NULL;
break;
}
}
return 0;
}
/*

static ssize_t
cma_test_write(struct file *file, const char __user *buf, size_t

ret = -ENOMEM;
}
break;
}
}
return count;
}

MODULE_LICENSE("GPL");
MODULE_AUTHOR("Barry Song <Baohua.Song@csr.com>");
MODULE_DESCRIPTION("kernel module to help the test of CMA");
MODULE_ALIAS("CMA test");

While fulfilling "dd if=/dev/mmcblk0 of=/dev/null bs=4096
count=1024000000 &" and "dd if=/dev/zero of=/data/1 bs=4096
count=1024000000 &" to exhaust memory at background,
i alloc the contiguous memories using the cma_test driver:
$echo 0 > /dev/cma_test
[ 16.582216] misc cma_test: alloc virt: ceb00000 phys: 0eb00000
$echo 0 > /dev/cma_test
[ 20.843395] misc cma_test: alloc virt: cec00000 phys: 0ec00000
$echo 0 > /dev/cma_test
[ 21.774601] misc cma_test: alloc virt: cee00000 phys: 0ee00000
$echo 0 > /dev/cma_test
[ 22.925633] misc cma_test: alloc virt: cf100000 phys: 0f100000
i did see the page write back is executed and contiguous memories are
always available.

P.S. the whole series was also back ported to 2.6.38.8 which our
release is based on.
