+
+The four functions above are just like the counterpart functions 
+without the _attrs suffixes, except that they pass an optional 
+struct dma_attrs*. 
+
+struct dma_attrs encapsulates a set of "dma attributes". For the 
+definition of struct dma_attrs see linux/dma-attrs.h. 
+
+The interpretation of dma attributes is architecture-specific. 
+
+If struct dma_attrs* is NULL, the semantics of each of these 
+functions is identical to those of the corresponding function 
+without the _attrs suffix. As a result dma_map_single_attrs() 
+can generally replace dma_map_single(), etc.
+
+As an example of the use of the *_attrs functions, here's how 
+you could pass an attribute DMA_ATTR_FOO when mapping memory 
+for DMA:
+
+#include <linux/dma-attrs.h>
+/* DMA_ATTR_FOO should be defined in linux/dma-attrs.h */
+...
+
+	DECLARE_DMA_ATTRS(attrs);
+	dma_set_attr(&attrs, DMA_ATTR_FOO);
+	....
+	n = dma_map_sg_attrs(dev, sg, nents, DMA_TO_DEVICE, &attr);
+	....
+
+Architectures that care about DMA_ATTR_FOO would check for its 
+presence in their implementations of the mapping and unmapping 
+routines, e.g.:
+
+void whizco_dma_map_sg_attrs(struct device *dev, dma_addr_t dma_addr, 
+			     size_t size, enum dma_data_direction dir, 
+			     struct dma_attrs* attrs)
+{
+	....
+	int foo =  dma_get_attr(attrs, DMA_ATTR_FOO);
+	....
+	if (foo) 
+		/* twizzle the frobnozzle */
+	....
+
