Mapping to device memory

1. mmap_device_io()

uintptr_t mmap_device_io( size_t len, uint64_t io );

  • maps len bytes of device I/O memory at io, and makes it accessiable via the in*() and out*() function.
  • returns a handle to the device’s I/O memory, or MAP_DEVICE_FAILED if an error occurs (errnois set).


uintptr_t vin_base;

ctx->vin_base = mmap_device_io(RCAR3_VIN_SIZE, RCAR3_VIN0_BASE); 

 if (ctx->vin_base == (uintptr_t)MAP_DEVICE_FAILED) {

                 ctx->vin_base = (uintptr_t)NULL; 

                 return errno;


Access the registers:

uint32_t reg_val;

reg_val = in32(vin_base + (off));

out32(vin_base + (off), (value));

2. mmap_device_memory()

void * mmap_device_memory( void * addr, size_t len,  int prot, int flags, uint64_t physical); 

  • maps len bytes of a device’s physical memory address into the caller’s address space at the location returned by mmap_device_memory().
  • Returns the address of the mapped-in object, or MAP_FAILED if an error occurs (errno is set).


 uint32_t *ipu_regp;   

ipu_regp = (uint32_t*)mmap_device_memory(NULL, IPU_REGSIZE,                   PROT_READ|PROT_WRITE|PROT_NOCACHE, 0, ipu_regbase);

if (ipu_regp == MAP_FAILED) {

                  ipu_regptr = NULL;

                  return err; 


#define ipu_regptr(offset)  (uint32_t volatile *) (((unsigned char volatile *) ipu_regp) + offset)

#define IPU_CONF         ipu_regptr(IPU_CONF_OFFSET + 0x0)

uint32_t ipu_conf_val;

ipu_conf_val = *IPU_CONF;           

*IPU_CONF = ipu_conf_val;
