Well, there must exist some sort of scheme for the kernel to work
with these 36-bit addresses, but I don't quiet get it yet. Is
anybody willing to give me some insight?
On the Alchemy processors, only some peripherals exist
above the 32-bit boundary. We use a 64-bit version of
ioremap() to access this space.
Of course the compiler warns us during compilation of
drivers/pcmcia/au1000_generic.c:403: warning: integer constant is
too large for "long" type
It looks like your configuration file is not enabling the
64-bit IO option.
.... I expect
from reading the au1100 databook and 'See MIPS Run (chapter 6)
that the TLB is involved, but I'm not yet able to link it
This has already been done for you :-) There is nothing
for you to invent. You didn't mention which version of
the kernel you are using, but the default configuration
files for boards with Alchemy processors should have
all of this properly configured.
