I took a quick look.

There are a few inline functions in .c files which is generally
frowned upon. Let the compiler decide.


static inline struct dpaa2_io *service_select_by_cpu(struct dpaa2_io *d,
int cpu)
static inline struct dpaa2_io *service_select(struct dpaa2_io *d)

dpaa2_io_down() seems to be too simple. dpaa2_io_create() sets up
interrupt triggers, notifications, and adds the new object to the
dpio_list. dpaa2_io_down() seems to just free the memory. Do
notifications need to be disabled, the object taken off the list?

dpaa2_io_store_create() allocates memory using kzalloc() and then uses
dma_map_single(,,DMA_FROM_DEVICE). The documentation says:

DMA_FROM_DEVICE synchronisation must be done before the driver
accesses data that may be changed by the device. This memory
should be treated as read-only by the driver. If the driver needs
to write to it at any point, it should be DMA_BIDIRECTIONAL (see

Since it has just been allocated, this seems questionable.

I'm also not sure where the correct call to
dma_map_single(,,DMA_FROM_DEVICE) is? Should dpaa2_io_store_next()
doing this?

The DMA API usage might need a closer review.
