how to set userspace pages in uncacheable mode?

Hi All,

In some case, i want to use userspace pages in uncacheable mode? I know it can use set_memory_uc() function in the kernel space, but how to make it in userspace?

If you have any suggestion, you can guide me, thanks very much.

Best Regards!

Hi Carlos_A,

I want to use uncacheable userspace pages as the descriptors of NIC device. When the NIC device accesses the descriptors by DMA, if the descriptors is cacheable, in some way the descriports would be flushed to memory. I want to avoid these process, so can the user pages be set as uncacheable mode?

Best Regards!
