SubjectRe: drm: add helper to clflush a virtual address range
Hi Daniel,

I see you say you wanted the patch below for the stable tree, due to
some later patch needing it, yet this patch was not "marked" for the
stable tree, and I can't seem to figure out which "later patch" you are
referring to here.

Any hints on what I should do for the 3.4-stable kernel tree with this?

thanks,

greg k-h
