So this is a difference between Panfrost and kbase. Panfrost (well
technically the IOMMU framework) enables the inner-shareable bit for all
memory, whereas kbase only enables it for some memory types (the
BASE_MEM_COHERENT_LOCAL flag in the UABI controls it). However this
should only be a performance/power difference (and AFAIK probably an
irrelevant one) and it's definitely required that "inner shareable"
(i.e. within the GPU) works for communication between the different
units of the GPU.

You didn't answer my previous question:

> Is this device working with the kbase/DDK proprietary driver?

What you are describing sounds like a hardware integration issue, so it
would be good to check that the hardware is working with the proprietary
driver to rule that out. And perhaps there is something in the kbase for
this device that is setting a chicken bit to 'fix' the coherency?
