Subject[PATCH] dma-debug: disable DMA_API_DEBUG for now
From
dma-debugs wrongly assumes that no multiple DMA transfers are
performed against the same dma address on one device at the same
time. However it's true only with hardware IOMMUs. For example, an
application can easily send the same buffer twice with different
lengths to one device by using DIO and AIO. If these requests are not
unmapped in the same order in which they were mapped,
hash_bucket_find() finds a wrong entry and gives a false warning.

We should fix this before 2.6.30 release. Seems that there is no
easy way to fix it. I think that it's better to just disable
dma-debug for now.

Torsten Kaiser found this bug with the RAID1 configuration:
