Thanks Arnd, for once again using the words "bug" and "completely wrong"
when referring to something that obviously works just fine...


The solution you introduced for venus and adreno relies on static
reservations of system ram, which isn't pretty, but more importantly
isn't viable for the qcom_scm driver.


So, how do I dynamically allocate a chunk of coherent memory?

Preferably with the possibility of unmapping it temporarily from Linux
while passing the buffer into the trusted environment (as any accesses
during the operation might cause access violations).

Regards,
Bjorn
