My code is not currently in the tree, but I have 3 different hooks for
3 different processor types.  The generic __dma_sync() workaround used
on R10K is not sufficient.

That is a good idea.  One thing I'd like to do is continue sharing the
same R10K code for IP27 / IP28 / IP32 / SNI_RM, and move all of it out
of dma-default.c .  Do you have any suggestions on how to define the
plat_* handlers on a per-cpu-type basis instead of making 4 identical
copies of the R10K workaround?
