SubjectRe: x86-64 general protection fault in ioremap_nocache() possibly related to memory beyond 4GB
From
Date
The same problem
(http://www.uwsg.indiana.edu/hypermail/linux/kernel/0406.2/1919.html)
exists with a 2.6.7 kernel.org kernel.

The full oops message for ohci_hcd on the vanilla 2.6.7:

Once again, removing memory beyond 4GB with a 'mem=' parameter eliminates the problem.

With the 2.6.7 kernel X no longer causes an oops but instead locks itself up.
My own driver still has the same problem as ohci_hcd in ioremap_nocache().

I tried disabling the hardware iommu with 'iommu=soft', and that did not have any effect.
