ALSA: vmalloc buffers should use normal mmap
It's a big no-no to use pgprot_noncached() when mmap'ing such buffers into userspace since they are mapped cachable in kernel space. This can cause all sort of interesting things ranging from to garbled sound to lockups on various architectures. I've observed that usb-audio is broken on powerpc 4xx for example because of that. Also remove the now unused snd_pcm_lib_mmap_noncached(). It's an arch business to know when to use uncached mappings, there's already hacks for MIPS inside snd_pcm_default_mmap() and other archs are supposed to use dma_mmap_coherent(). (See my separate patch that adds dma_mmap_coherent() to powerpc) Signed-off-by: Benjamin Herrenschmidt <benh@kernel.crashing.org> CC: <stable@kernel.org> Signed-off-by: Takashi Iwai <tiwai@suse.de>
