There's a macro trick that adds a pad member after the buffer too, so
that it gets rounded up to the cacheline size:

> +#define __dma_aligned __attribute__((aligned(ARCH_MIN_DMA_ALIGNMENT)))
> +#define __dma_buffer __dma_buffer_line(__LINE__)
> +#define __dma_buffer_line(line) __dma_aligned;\
> + char __dma_pad_##line[0] __dma_aligned

So that part is OK at least.

- R.
