Hi, Lucas, sorry for so long a delay because I have a holiday for one month.

I found Loongson-3 must turn on SWIOTLB if the system memory has
addresses above 4G. As I know, there are two ways to get a DMA addr,
the first way is use dma_alloc_coherent(), and the other one is use
map_page()/map_sg() on an exsisting address. The first way can make
sure DMA addr below 4G, but the second way cannot (unless the memory
is so little that all the address space is below 4G).

Take SATA driver as an example, during initialization an 'ata_device'
struct is allocated and its address is probably above 4G (because this
is first used by CPU, not for DMA). 'ata_device' has a member 'id' and
'id' will be use for DMA in such a call path:

ata_host_register() --> ata_scsi_add_hosts() --> async_port_probe()
--> ata_port_probe() --> ata_bus_probe() --> ata_dev_read_id() -->
ata_exec_internal() --> ata_exec_internal_sg() --> ata_qc_issue() -->
ata_sg_setup() --> dma_map_sg()

Here,  dma_map_sg() will get a DMA addr above 4G, then SATA init failed.

In OHCI driver, there are similar situations.

P.S.:  With recently drm changes, I found radeon with SWIOTLB can
already work after suspend/resume, so my next version of Loongson
patches will not modify radeon_ttm.c.
