Are you saying that this USB OHCI chip can only access its internal
SRAM ? In that case not only the HCCA area but all the TDs, EDs and
the data pointed to by the descriptors should be allocated there
(basically all data that would be normally accessed by the OHCI chip
as pci master).

Did you check the mapped address is correct (e.g. by reading the
revision field of the ohci_regs) ?
