Thank you for the comments, this particular memory is always a write
from the A9 for MMU programming and
only read from the slave processor, that is the reason for not calling
the unmap. I can re-look into the changes to call
unmap in a proper way as this impacts the DMA API.
Are there any other ways to perform only flush the memory from L1/L2 caches?
