Hi Mark, Actualy I'm not getting any error from bus_dmamem_alloc, that's the strange thing. Yet printing the dma_map pointer shows 0 unless I use bus_dmamap_create after bus_dmamem_alloc. bus_mamap_load doesn't fail in both cases.
I'm working on an Ethernet driver for FreeBSD, pinging messages larger than MTU crash the kernel at some point, I'm investigating the dma direction at the moment. --Yony On Thu, Mar 20, 2008 at 7:29 PM, Mark Tinguely <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote: > > so I'm running: > > > > err = > > bus_dmamem_alloc(ring->dma_tag, &ring->buf, > > BUS_DMA_NOWAIT|BUS_DMA_ALLOCNOW, &ring->dma_map); > > > > but after calling bus_dmamem_allloc the dma_map variable is still NULL. > is > > this OK? > > Sure, you are allocating with BUS_DMA_NOWAIT. err is probably equal to > ENOMEM. > > If allocation size is larger than a PAGE_SIZE or specific alignment is > require then contigmalloc() is called to satisfy the allocation. > contigmalloc() can fail even when specifying WAITOK. > > --Mark Tinguely. > _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
