It's part of the driver's ioctl. Relevant lines:

static int poch_ioctl(struct inode *inode, struct file *filp,
unsigned int cmd, unsigned long arg)
{
/* ---snip---*/
case POCH_IOC_SYNC_GROUP_FOR_USER:
case POCH_IOC_SYNC_GROUP_FOR_DEVICE:
vms = find_vma(current->mm, arg);
if (!vms)
/* Address not mapped. */
return -EINVAL;
if (vms->vm_file != filp)
/* Address mapped from different device/file. */
return -EINVAL;
flush_cache_range(vms, arg, arg + channel->group_size);
