Hi, invictus rm
      Thank you very much for your enthusiastic help.
      I think it will be BIG help to me.Thank you.
      There is some thing i want to see your advise and help again.
      In BCM1250 we run the mips-linux which is customer compiled by us,
and in the  MCP750 there is linux too.What i want to implement is
transfering  data from BCM1250 to MCP750 through PCI.And using "dmesg"
i found the following info:(In BCM1250 ,MIPS-LINUX)
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

@ Jan  1 00:00:11 (none) kernel: pcisharemem allocated @ 85800000
...................
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
In the above lines tagged with @ i notice that there is "bigphysarea=8192 pcisharesize=16", I have read "kernel/include/linux/mm/bigphysarea.h" ,and known that bigphysarea can be used to reserve some amount of physical memory at boot-time for PCI communication.A friend told me using it is simple ,but he did not tell me kow :-)~(Of course i think he knows it from others). And i think in my kernel module i can implement it.Without any knowledge on it ,I am swamped now. Can you give me some info on how to do that ,such as how to use the "bigphysarea"?How the MCP750
see the "bigphysarea" in BCM1250 and access it (read it)?
I think i am so avaricious , but i really thirst for the help and advice.
    Thank you again and in advance again.:-)~
