Hey All,
  So just wanted to send another revision of my patch series
of performance optimizations to the dma-buf system heap, this
time against drm-misc-next.

This series reworks the system heap to use sgtables, and then
consolidates the pagelist method from the heap-helpers into the
CMA heap. After which the heap-helpers logic is removed (as it
is unused). I'd still like to find a better way to avoid some of
the logic duplication in implementing the entire dma_buf_ops
handlers per heap. But unfortunately that code is tied somewhat
to how the buffer's memory is tracked. As more heaps show up I
think we'll have a better idea how to best share code, so for
now I think this is ok.

After this, the series introduces an optimization that
Ørjan Eide implemented for ION that avoids calling sync on
attachments that don't have a mapping.

Finally, an optimization to use larger order pages for the system
heap. This change brings us closer to the current performance
of the ION allocation code (though there still is a gap due
to ION using a mix of deferred-freeing and page pools, I'll be
looking at integrating those eventually).

This version of the series does not include the system-uncached
heap as Daniel wanted further demonstration that it is useful
with devices that use the mesa stack. I'm working on such a
justification but I don't want to hold up these rework patches
in the meantime.


New in v6:
* Dropped the system-uncached heap submission for now
* Rebased onto drm-misc-next
