[PATCH 0/5] SWIOTLB for ppc/mpc86xx

This patch series allows the use of swiotlb on mpc86xx, with 85xx 
support soon to follow.  The most notable change here is the addition
of addr_needs_map to dma_ops.  This is used to tell if a device
can reach an address without bounce buffering.  I believe that patches
will be coming out soon to make dma_ops non-arch-specific, and
I expect to see something similar there as well.

I've also changed sg_dma_len to be the same on both 32 and 64-bit.
We now look at sg->dma_length in both cases (see patch log).

The dma_window* elements in the pci_controller struct are hoisted
out of an #ifdef CONFIG_PPC64 so we can use them to store off
information about how much memory is mapped via the inbound pci

A dma-swiotlb.c is created in arch/powerpc/kernel to contain
all the platform-specific iotlb code.

Finally, hooks are provided to allow enabling of this feature on 
86xx via Kconfig, and a 36-bit device tree for 8641hpcn is provided.
