Subject[PATCHv2 5/8] videobuf2: add V4L2_MEMORY_FLAG_NON_COHERENT flag
Date
By setting or clearing V4L2_MEMORY_FLAG_NON_COHERENT flag
user-space should be able to hint vb2 that either a non-coherent
(if supported) or coherent memory should be used for the buffer
allocation.

+ - A buffer is allocated either in coherent (it will be automatically
+ coherent between the CPU and the bus) or non-coherent memory. The
+ latter can provide performance gains, for instance the CPU cache
+ sync/flush operations can be avoided if the buffer is accessed by the
+ corresponding device only and the CPU does not read/write to/from that
+ buffer. However, this requires extra care from the driver -- it must
+ guarantee memory consistency by issuing a cache flush/sync when
+ consistency is needed. If this flag is set V4L2 will attempt to
+ allocate the buffer in non-coherent memory. The flag takes effect
+ only if the buffer is used for :ref:`memory mapping <mmap>` I/O and the
+ queue reports the :ref:`V4L2_BUF_CAP_SUPPORTS_MMAP_CACHE_HINTS
+ <V4L2-BUF-CAP-SUPPORTS-MMAP-CACHE-HINTS>` capability.
