Subject[PATCH] swiotlb: fix dma_alloc_coherent allocation failures with swiotlb
Date
The SWIOTLB version of dma_alloc_coherent allocates all memory with
GFP_DMA unconditionally. This leads sometimes unnecessary to allocation
failures. This patch makes the allocation strategy to use the DMA32 zone
first if this is possible. The changes are boot tested on AMD64 and
compile tested for i386 and IA64.
