Subject: drm/radeon/kms: fix for radeon on systems >4GB without
hardware iommu
From: Daniel Haid <>
commit 62fff811d73095bd95579d72f558f03c78f7914a upstream.
On my x86_64 system with >4GB of ram and swiotlb instead of
a hardware iommu (because I have a VIA chipset), the call
to pci_set_dma_mask (see below) with 40bits returns an error.
But it seems that the radeon driver is designed to have
need_dma32 = true exactly if pci_set_dma_mask is called
with 32 bits and false if it is called with 40 bits.
I have read somewhere that the default are 32 bits. So if the
call fails I suppose that need_dma32 should be set to true.
And indeed the patch fixes the problem I have had before
and which I had described here:,106131,115940
