No,I mean problem caused different cpu & pci address space.from pci's view,
the main memory is at address 0x80000000-0x90000000 in p6032.But for cpu,
they are 0x0-0x10000000.So current virt_to_bus & bus_to_virt won't work.

yes:).When i solve the 8259,i will try to make them same.

I think the "depreciated" is only for direct usage: they are used in
arch/mips/pci-dma.c to implement new interface pci_alloc_consistent.
And there are still many driver using them(grep tell me).Am i missing
