Fix Oops with Atmel SPI
Hi Anders, I wouldn't recommend that. MTD erase blocks are 64K or more. In a typical embedded system you will not be able to kmalloc that much memory after a few day's of operation - the page pool gets fragmented. A possibly better approach is to arrange for that memory to get allocated at driver start time. ... 28 May 2010 06:04

Hello Dan, I have some doubts regarding DMA API usage on its clients for example MMC, ALSA, USB etc. I am going to take example of the ALSA framework. Audio data transfer is initiated in soc_pcm_trigger(). This is called in an atomic context, with spinlock held and irqs disabled. Here most drivers enable data ... 14 Apr 2010 03:19
