SubjectRe: [PATCH v3 0/7] ARM: Fix dma_alloc_coherent() and friends for NOMMU
From
Date
FYI, nothing has changed since last "ping" - András and Alexandre are still
dependant on this series to safely enable DMA on their platforms. It is really
scary that these patches do not move forward even though they are supposed to
fix the real issue :(

Thanks
Vladimir
