    SubjectXIP kernel - bss address location issue
    Hi,

    I have a montavista XIP kernel running on ARM and my kernel will be in
    the flash. Since its XIP, I know that the ".text" portion of the
    kernel will be executed from flash but that ".data" needs to be placed
    in SDRAM. Now my question is - based on what offset this data will be
    placed?

    My SDRAM physicall address starts at 3000_0000 and flash starts at
    0100_0000. when i allocated a global variable in the kernel module and
    when i try to check its actually physical address using virt_to_phys,
    its giving me the address in the range of 0100_0000 ~ 0600_0000 which
    is my flash (the PAGE_OFFSET doesn't work in case of XIP).

    Can you please help in knowing the physical address of my .data
    portion in this situation.

    Thanks
    Shree
