Hi,

Back in 2010 you made CONFIG_SWIOTLB mandatory (commit b93b2a). This prevents 
the Continuous
memory allocation from being enabled. Would you be willing to accept a patch 
which allows 
this option to be disabled if CONFIG_EXPERT is set? I suspect some users of 
Octeon can
review their hardware to be sure it's save to do.

Daniel
