firewire: ohci: Asynchronous Reception rewrite
Move the AR DMA descriptors out of the buffer pages, and map the buffer pages linearly into the kernel's address space. This allows the driver to ignore any page boundaries in the DMA data and thus to avoid any copying around of packet payloads. This fixes the bug where S800 packets that are so big (> 4080 bytes) that they can be split over three pages were not handled correctly. Due to the changed algorithm, we can now use arbitrarily many buffer pages, which improves performance because the controller can more easily unload its DMA FIFO. Furthermore, using streaming DMA mappings should improve perfomance on architectures where coherent DMA mappings are not cacheable. Even on other architectures, the caching behaviour should be improved slightly because the CPU no longer writes to the buffer pages. v2: Detect the last filled buffer page by searching the descriptor's residual count value fields in order (like in the old code), instead of going backwards through the transfer status fields; it looks as if some controllers do not set the latter correctly. v3: Fix an old resume bug that would now make the handler run into a BUG_ON, and replace that check with more useful error handling. Increase the buffer size for better performance with non-TI chips. Signed-off-by: Clemens Ladisch <clemens@ladisch.de> Maxim Levitsky writes: Works almost perfectly. I can still see RCODE_BUSY errors sometimes, not very often though. 64K here eliminates these errors completely. This is most likely due to nouveau drivers and lowest perf level I use to lower card temperature. That increases latencies too much I think. Besides that the IO is just perfect.
