If I recall you had acked patch 1, but for 2 you had some review
comments on and suggested I change a few things. What was patch 2 in
the RFC was split out into patches 2 and 3. That is why I didn't
include an Ack from you for those patches.

Patch 2 is a fix for Xen to address the fact that you could return
either 0 or ~0. It was part of patch 2 originally and I pulled it out
into a separate patch.

Patch 3 does most of what patch 2 in the RFC was doing before with
fixes to address the fact that I was moving some code to avoid going
over 80 characters. I found a different way to fix that by just
updating attrs before using it instead of ORing in the value when
passing it as a parameter.

The biggest difference from patch 2 in the RFC is right here. This
code before was moving this off to the end of the function and adding
a label which I then jumped to. I just ORed the
DMA_ATTR_SKIP_CPU_SYNC into attrs and skipped the problem entirely.
It should be harmless to do this way since attrs isn't used anywhere
else once we have had the error.

I hope that helps to clear it up. So if you want I will add your
Acked-by for patches 2 and 3, but I just wanted to make sure this
worked with the changes you suggested.
