[PATCH 0/8] iommu/iova: Implement deferred flush queue




Hi,

here is an implementation of deferred flush queues in the
common iova code. Some users of the iova code already
implement their own flush-queues, like the AMD-Vi and
Intel VT-d drivers.

The implementation adds a per-cpu ring-buffer to the
iova_domain structure and adds code to maintain that
ring-buffer.

A timer is also used to make sure pending entries in the
ring-buffer are flushed regularily, even when the
ring-buffers don't fill up.

The AMD and Intel IOMMU drivers are converted to make use of
this code and their own implementations for deferred
flushing are removed.

The code has been tested on an AMD and an Intel machine with
network and disk IO.

Please review.

Regards,

	Joerg
