Default : SRU request for LP#247148

This is a multi-part message in MIME format.
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/247148

SRU justification:

Impact: Using SWIOMMU unnecessarily causes "out of space" errors and
subsequently causes corruptions in software RAID (and probably also caused the
problems mentioned in
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/238118/comments/9).


Fix: (taken from the Xen changelog) This patch adds a new check,
check_pages_physically_contiguous(), to the test for pages stradding page
boundaries both in swiotlb_map_sg() and dma_map_sg(), to capture these ranges
and map them directly via virt_to_bus() mapping rather than through the swiotlb.


Testcase: IO errors when doing increased workload on SCSI drives (see bug report)

When all other means of communication fail, try words!

ACK - the test results look good.
