dma-buf: Add ioctls to allow userspace to flush

The userspace might need some sort of cache coherency management e.g. when CPU
and GPU domains are being accessed through dma-buf at the same time. To
circumvent this problem there are begin/end coherency markers, that forward
directly to existing dma-buf device drivers vfunc hooks. Userspace can make use
of those markers through the DMA_BUF_IOCTL_SYNC ioctl. The sequence would be
used like following:
     - mmap dma-buf fd
     - for each drawing/upload cycle in CPU 1. SYNC_START ioctl, 2. read/write
       to mmap area 3. SYNC_END ioctl. This can be repeated as often as you
       want (with the new data being consumed by the GPU or say scanout device)
     - munmap once you don't need the buffer any more

v2 (Tiago): Fix header file type names (u64 -> __u64)
v3 (Tiago): Add documentation. Use enum dma_buf_sync_flags to the begin/end
dma-buf functions. Check for overflows in start/length.
v4 (Tiago): use 2d regions for sync.
v5 (Tiago): forget about 2d regions (v4); use _IOW in DMA_BUF_IOCTL_SYNC and
remove range information from struct dma_buf_sync.
v6 (Tiago): use __u64 structured padded flags instead enum. Adjust
documentation about the recommendation on using sync ioctls.
v7 (Tiago): Alex' nit on flags definition and being even more wording in the
doc about sync usage.
v9 (Tiago): remove useless is_dma_buf_file check. Fix sync.flags conditionals
and its mask order check. Add <linux/types.h> include in dma-buf.h.

......@@ -350,7 +350,26 @@ Being able to mmap an export dma-buf buffer object has 2 main use-cases:
handles, too). So it's beneficial to support this in a similar fashion on
dma-buf to have a good transition path for existing Android userspace.
No special interfaces, userspace simply calls mmap on the dma-buf fd.
No special interfaces, userspace simply calls mmap on the dma-buf fd, making
sure that the cache synchronization ioctl (DMA_BUF_IOCTL_SYNC) is *always*
used when the access happens. This is discussed next paragraphs.
Some systems might need some sort of cache coherency management e.g. when
CPU and GPU domains are being accessed through dma-buf at the same time. To
circumvent this problem there are begin/end coherency markers, that forward
directly to existing dma-buf device drivers vfunc hooks. Userspace can make
use of those markers through the DMA_BUF_IOCTL_SYNC ioctl. The sequence
would be used like following:
- mmap dma-buf fd
- for each drawing/upload cycle in CPU 1. SYNC_START ioctl, 2. read/write
to mmap area 3. SYNC_END ioctl. This can be repeated as often as you
want (with the new data being consumed by the GPU or say scanout device)
- munmap once you don't need the buffer any more
Therefore, for correctness and optimal performance, systems with the memory
cache shared by the GPU and CPU i.e. the "coherent" and also the
"incoherent" are always required to use SYNC_START and SYNC_END before and
after, respectively, when accessing the mapped address.
