Thanks, you're correct I missed this. I will fix this (and the qman
version) and run sparse.

My wording is poor I should have been clearer that non-shareable ==
non-coherent. I will fix this.

We do understand that cacheable/non shareable isn't supported on all
CPU/interconnect combinations but we have verified with ARM that for the
CPU/interconnects we have integrated QBMan on our use is OK. The note is
here to try to explain why the mapping is different right now. Once we
get the basic QBMan support integrated for ARM we do plan to try to have
patches integrated that enable the cacheable mapping as it gives a
significant performance boost. This is a step 2 as we understand the
topic is complex and a little controversial so I think treating it as an
independent change will be easier than mixing it with the less
interesting changes in this patchset.

I will change this - it will be a little more compact.

Cache Enabled is also how the 'data sheet' for the processor describes
the region and I think it is useful to keep it aligned so that anyone
looking at the manual and the code can easily correlate the ter >

The barrier is done in the code where the command is formed. We follow
this pattern
a) Zero the command cache line (the device never reacts to a 0 command
verb so a cast out of this will have no effect)
b) Fill in everything in the command except the command verb (byte 0)
c) Execute a memory barrier
d) Set the command verb (byte 0)
e) Flush the command
If a castout happens between d) and e) doesn't matter since it was about
to be flushed anyway . Any castout before d) will not cause HW to
process the command because verb is still 0. The barrier at c) prevents
reordering so the HW cannot see the verb set before the command is formed.
