Am I correct that you are talking about the possibility of re-ioremap()-ing
the 'yuv-fb-yuv' area *after* loading the firmware, not of mapping ranges
correctly on the first go-around?
Because unless my math is letting me down, the decoder firmware is already
loaded from 'base_addr + 0x01000000 + 0x0' to 'base_addr + 0x01000000 + 0x3ffff'
which overlaps the beginning of the yuv range.
