SubjectRe: PATCH 2.5.4 i810_audio, bttv, working at all.
   From: Martin Dalecki <>

Of course I admit that I have taken the easy shoot here. But it wasn't
to me to deduce the proper thing to do by looking at the patches.
This is the usual way I deal with API changes: Have a look at what has
been done
to the other candidates and do the analogous thing where you need it.

The API hasn't changed, it is being enforced. The PCI DMA api
has existed for years. Please read Documentation/DMA-mapping.txt
so that you may learn how to properly convert drivers.

But please just show me a non x86 architecture which is using the
i810_audio driver!

Because if all drivers are consistently using the portable interfaces,
people writing new drivers will know exactly what to do.
