April, in order to understand your proble, Can you be a bit more
1) Which cache should be flushed? Cpu cache or GPU cache.
2) Why should it be flushed? For CPU caches, TTM only flushes when
transitioning the same page from cached to write-combined. If you use
DMA from system memory to VRAM, and need to flush the system pages
before performing the DMA operation, that should be done in the driver
