I'm relying on Adam's reports of working and non-working versions.
According to that etnaviv works when CMA area is at 0x80000000 and does not
work when it is at 0x30000000.

He also sent logs a few days ago [1], they also confirm that.

I've mentioned that patch because it removed the check for cmdbuf address
for MMUv1:

@@ -785,15 +768,7 @@ int etnaviv_gpu_init(struct etnaviv_gpu *gpu)
PAGE_SIZE);
if (ret) {
dev_err(gpu->dev, "could not create command buffer\n");
- goto unmap_suballoc;
- }
-
- if (!(gpu->identity.minor_features1 & chipMinorFeatures1_MMU_VERSION) &&
- etnaviv_cmdbuf_get_va(&gpu->buffer, &gpu->cmdbuf_mapping) > 0x80000000) {
- ret = -EINVAL;
- dev_err(gpu->dev,
- "command buffer outside valid memory window\n");
- goto free_buffer;
+ goto fail;
}

/* Setup event management */

I really don't know how etnaviv works, so I hoped that people who
understand it would help.
