[dm-devel] [PATCH] dm-io: flush CPU cache on vmalloc mappings



dm-io: flush CPU cache on vmalloc mappings

For normal kernel pages, CPU cache is synchronized by the dma layer.
However, this is not done for pages allocated with vmalloc. If we do I/O
to/from vmallocated pages, we must synchronize CPU cache explicitly.

Prior to doing I/O on vmallocated page we must call
flush_kernel_vmap_range to flush dirty cache on the virtual address.
After finished read we must call invalidate_kernel_vmap_range to
invalidate cache on the virtual address, so that accesses to the virtual
address return newly read data and not stale data from CPU cache.

This patch fixes metadata corruption on dm-snapshots on PA-RISC and
possibly other architectures with caches indexed by virtual address.
