Can you specify about your allocation a bit more ? size ? method of
allocation (CMA/external ram+ioremap/other) ?

oh, so you're < ARMv6 (no CMA). you'd need to set aside some coherent
memory for your device then.

That's fine: remoteproc supports these cases, and does not require an IOMMU.

We also successfully tested this with davinci, which does not have an IOMMU.

Looping in Mark, who did the davinci remoteproc support, and might
have the code available to share. Hopefully we'd have the patches
posted soon, and then no-iommu platforms could just use them for
