ARM: dma-mapping: fix for speculative prefetching
ARMv6 and ARMv7 CPUs can perform speculative prefetching, which makes DMA cache coherency handling slightly more interesting. Rather than being able to rely upon the CPU not accessing the DMA buffer until DMA has completed, we now must expect that the cache could be loaded with possibly stale data from the DMA buffer. Where DMA involves data being transferred to the device, we clean the cache before handing it over for DMA, otherwise we invalidate the buffer to get rid of potential writebacks. On DMA Completion, if data was transferred from the device, we invalidate the buffer to get rid of any stale speculative prefetches.
