I don't understand still. You said that they do not belong to same
address space, right? But the sprd,ums512-apahb-gate in this patch or
mentioned rpll
does not reference any other address space. It's entire address space is
the same as address space of glbregs.

So if it does not belong to the same address space, where is this space

Best regards,
