Subject[PATCH 00/15] iio: buffer-dma: write() and new DMABUF based API
Hi Jonathan,

This patchset introduces a new userspace interface based on DMABUF
objects, to complement the existing fileio based API.

The advantage of this DMABUF based interface vs. the fileio
interface, is that it avoids an extra copy of the data between the
kernel and userspace. This is particularly userful for high-speed
devices which produce several megabytes or even gigabytes of data per

The first few patches [01/15] to [03/15] are not really related, but
allow to reduce the size of the patches that introduce the new API.

Patch [04/15] to [06/15] enables write() support to the buffer-dma
implementation of the buffer API, to continue the work done by
Mihail Chindris.

Patches [07/15] to [12/15] introduce the new DMABUF based API.

Patches [13/15] and [14/15] add support for cyclic buffers, only through
the new API. A cyclic buffer will be repeated on the output until the
buffer is disabled.

Patch [15/15] adds documentation about the new API.

For now, the API allows you to alloc DMABUF objects and mmap() them to
read or write the samples. It does not yet allow to import DMABUFs
parented to other subsystems, but that should eventually be possible
once it's wired.

This patchset is inspired by the "mmap interface" that was previously
submitted by Alexandru Ardelean and Lars-Peter Clausen, so it would be
great if I could get a review from you guys. Alexandru's commit was
signed with his address but he doesn't work at ADI anymore,
so I believe I'll need him to sign with a new email.
