Hi All,


I am trying to allocate coherent memory for 33 MB in kerenl driver. and for that i have reserved CMA of 200 MB, but from dmesg, i can see that address reserved for cma is different and what i get with dma_alloc_coherent is different. My pc is x86 machine and tried in different motherboard, but this issue is occuring in some specific PCs. please help me in debugging the actual issue, below are kernel logs..
at init i boot...

[ 0.014362] No NUMA configuration found
[ 0.014363] Faking a node at [mem 0x0000000000000000-0x000000021edfffff]

[ 0.014555] Normal [mem 0x0000000100000000-0x000000021edfffff]

at dma_alloc_coherent call
[ 27.816062] dev->dma_33M_addr is f8000000
and below are the logs in working case, at driver dma_alloc_coherent api call we have address which is in range of what reserved for cma.
at boot i get..
Faking a node at [mem 0x0000000000000000-0x000000019fdfffff]
NODE_DATA(0) allocated [mem 0x19fdd3000-0x19fdfdfff]

Normal [mem 0x0000000100000000-0x000000019fdfffff]

at dma_alloc_coherent call
dev->dma_33M_addr is 16e200000


Please help me in solving this iissue, or can suggest any alternative way to allocate big coherent memory.


Thanks and Regards,
