iwlwifi: dma mapping read and write changes
Fenghua Yu [Wed, 18 Feb 2009 23:54:33 +0000 (15:54 -0800)]
When iwlwifi runs on IOMMU, IOMMU generates a lot of PTE write faults
because PTE write bit is not set on some of PTE's. This is because iwlwifi
driver calls DMA mapping with PCI_DMA_TODEVICE which is read only in mapping
PTE. But iwlwifi device actually writes to the mapped page to update its contents.
This issue is not exposed in swiotlb. But VT-d hardware can capture this fault and
stop the fault transaction.

The iwl TX command contains a scratch field that is updated by uCode to
indicate retry counts. For 5000 series the patch is required also for
regular frames, but this patch does not differenciate.
