You should make sys memory appears starting from 0x0 in PCI memory as well. 
That was part of what I meant by making PCI memory address and CPU physical
address identical.

Hmm, I am not too sure here.  My understanding is any new driver should try
*not* to use it.  pci-dma.c may use it because of lack of other means or just
a quick hack.
