Subject[HOWTO] accessing the DMA mapped data
Hi list,

I have a small question regarding the accessing the data in the DMA
mapped region (in the driver). In my driver I only have the
'dma_addr_t addr' variable which is result after the 'dma_map_single'.
I don't have access to the virtual address of the data region.

Is there helper routine which we will give me the virtual address back
from the DMA mapped address???

After some searching in the net about it found 'dma_sync_single' which
will help to synchronize it after 'modifying' the contents of the DMA mapped
region. But to 'modify' the contents of DMA mapped region I require the virtual
address, which is not available in my case.
