/* The specs call for 4K buffers for 30- and 32-bit DMA with 4K
* alignment and 8K buffers for 64-bit DMA with 8K alignment. Testing
* has shown that 4K is sufficient for the latter as long as the buffer
* does not cross an 8K boundary.
*
* alignment and 8K buffers for 64-bit DMA with 8K alignment.
* In practice we could use smaller buffers for the latter, but the
* alignment is really important because of the hardware bug. If bit
* 0x00001000 is used in DMA address, some hardware (like BCM4331)
* copies that bit into B43_DMA64_RXSTATUS and we get false values from
* B43_DMA64_RXSTATDPTR. Let's just use 8K buffers even if we don't use
* more than 256 slots for ring.
