As reported in [0], DMA mappings whose size exceeds the IOMMU IOVA caching
limit may see a big performance hit.

This series introduces a new DMA mapping API, dma_opt_mapping_size(), so
that drivers may know this limit when performance is a factor in the

The SCSI SAS transport code is modified only to use this limit. For now I
did not want to touch other hosts as I have a concern that this change
could cause a performance regression.

I also added a patch for libata-scsi as it does not currently honour the
shost max_sectors limit.

Changes since v3:
- Apply max DMA optimial limit to SAS hosts only
  Note: Even though "scsi: core: Cap shost max_sectors only once when
  adding" is a subset of a previous patch I did not transfer the RB tags
- Rebase on v5.19-rc4

Changes since v2:
- Rebase on v5.19-rc1
- Add Damien's tag to 2/4 (thanks)

Changes since v1:
- Relocate scsi_add_host_with_dma() dma_dev check (Reported by Dan)
- Add tags from Damien and Martin (thanks)
  - note: I only added Martin's tag to the SCSI patch

John Garry (5):
  dma-mapping: Add dma_opt_mapping_size()
  dma-iommu: Add iommu_dma_opt_mapping_size()
  scsi: core: Cap shost max_sectors according to DMA mapping limits only
  scsi: scsi_transport_sas: Cap shost max_sectors according to DMA
    optimal mapping limit
  libata-scsi: Cap ata_device->max_sectors according to
