The issue is always reproducible, but the error behavior isn't deterministic. Sometimes vchiq_test hangs and sometimes i get an error message from vchiq_test like this (but never errors from the kernel):

Any ideas why this causes a problem for this driver? From what I can see,
it doesn't make use of flush_dcache_page().
