Confirmed - on the OMAP4 board _with_ DMA, this patch fixes a problem
causing various faults in userspace - though it's nowhere near as bad
as the Versatile Express board.
So, we seem to have this behaviour:
- with PIO drivers, with this patch breaks userspace, without fixes userspace
- with DMA drivers, with this patch fixes userspace, without breaks userspace
Note that MMCI does do flush_dcache_page() on PIO read.
Maybe there's something wrong in __flush_dcache_page()?
