The problem applies to my patch as well, however my board has a unified
cache and I didn't think about ordering operations on the outer caches.

Subject: [PATCH] dma: define map/unmap functions for outer cache

Define map and unmap functions for outer cache and execute barriers
at appropriate places within them. For architectures without outer caches
these functions are nil.
