Yes please (either I haven't read it well though ;-)

Then why do you think PREREAD/PREWRITE ops are requied here?

As noted in the previous mail, if there is no WRITE op
(DMA xfer from CPU to device), POSTWRITE is not needed here.
(though POSTWRITE is no-op on most implemetation)

Strictly speaking, PREREAD or PREWRITE don't imply cache ops.
We should call bus_dmamap_sync(9) ops as defined in its API,
i.e. PREREAD/PREWRITE should be called before DMA started
and POSTREAD/POSTWRITE should be called after DMA xfer.
What is done in each op is implementation dependent,
so you can't assume PREREAD/PREWRITE ops always sync cache.
