Subject[PATCH 000/115] Android ION for drivers/staging
This patchset is to submit the Android ION code to drivers/staging.

ION is a constraint aware memory allocator used by Android in order
to allocate memory that can be properly shared between a number of
devices that possibly have different memory access constraints.

You can read some background on ION as well as some problematic
aspects of ION in my lwn summary here:

Recently, Colin Cross has put in quite a bit of effort to resolve
a number of the issues identified in that article as well as other.

While a number of issues remain, including negative sentiments
from upstream maintainers about the interface, ION provides
functionality (constraints based allocation), which is not currently
available upstream.

As discussed at Linux Plumbers this year (
it was proposed to merge the ION code into staging. This will allow for
better visibility to the upstream community, allowing further review
and understanding of the code, but it will also aid in the design of
dma-buf constraint-aware memory allocation helpers, allowing us to share
the backing heap allocation implementations.

In order to preserve authorship history, I've taken all the ION changes
in AOSP's common.git android-3.10 branch up to commit 8f1c42284159ebd6
(Improve ION config descriptions). The only modifications to the patches
that I've made is pushing down Colin's patch to migrate ION to staging
(ION was originally implemented in drivers/gpu/ion) so all the patches
apply to staging from the start.

I've also had to add a single patch (the last one) which moves ION
to use the new scan/count shrinker api introduced in 3.12.

Other then this one change, the only diff from AOSP's 3.10 branch are
corrected path names in the header comment. ie:
- * drivers/gpu/ion/ion.c
+ * drivers/staging/android/ion/ion.c

This is a fairly large patchset, and is also available here: dev/ion-staging

Please let me know if you have any thoughts or objections.
