Merge tag 'dmaengine-3.17' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/djbw/dmaengine
Pull dmaengine updates from Dan Williams: "Even though this has fixes marked for -stable, given the size and the needed conflict resolutions this is 3.18-rc1/merge-window material. These patches have been languishing in my tree for a long while. The fact that I do not have the time to do proper/prompt maintenance of this tree is a primary factor in the decision to step down as dmaengine maintainer. That and the fact that the bulk of drivers/dma/ activity is going through Vinod these days. The net_dma removal has not been in -next. It has developed simple conflicts against mainline and net-next (for-3.18). Continuing thanks to Vinod for staying on top of drivers/dma/. Summary: 1/ Step down as dmaengine maintainer see commit 08223d80df38 "dmaengine maintainer update" 2/ Removal of net_dma, as it has been marked 'broken' since 3.13 (commit 77873803363c "net_dma: mark broken"), without reports of performance regression. 3/ Miscellaneous fixes" * tag 'dmaengine-3.17' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/djbw/dmaengine: net: make tcp_cleanup_rbuf private net_dma: revert 'copied_early' net_dma: simple removal dmaengine maintainer update dmatest: prevent memory leakage on error path in thread ioat: Use time_before_jiffies() dmaengine: fix xor sources continuation dma: mv_xor: Rename __mv_xor_slot_cleanup() to mv_xor_slot_cleanup() dma: mv_xor: Remove all callers of mv_xor_slot_cleanup() dma: mv_xor: Remove unneeded mv_xor_clean_completed_slots() call ioat: Use pci_enable_msix_exact() instead of pci_enable_msix() drivers: dma: Include appropriate header file in dca.c drivers: dma: Mark functions as static in dma_v3.c dma: mv_xor: Add DMA API error checks ioat/dca: Use dev_is_pci() to check whether it is pci device

+What: tcp_dma_copybreak sysctl
+Date: Removed in kernel v3.13
+Contact: Dan Williams <dan.j.williams@intel.com>
+Description:
+ Formerly the lower limit, in bytes, of the size of socket reads
+ that will be offloaded to a DMA copy engine. Removed due to
+ coherency issues of the cpu potentially touching the buffers
+ while dma is in flight.
