Nicolas, for me this looks like a problem in v4l2. In the case of vivid
the stats overlay (where the coherency issues are observed, and most
probably the issue will be observed on the whole image but fortunately
it is a static image pattern) are filled by the CPU but I cannot see
where the cache is flushed. Also I'm wondering why .finish method is
missing for dma-vmalloc mem_ops.

To be sure that the problem is in vmalloc v4l2 allocator, could you
change the allocator to dma-contig, there is a module param for that
called 'allocators'.
