Android Oreo, Sabre IMX6Q/QP, PFNs busy

I am using the SABRE kit (I have one with i.MX6Q and another with i.MX6QP) and I am using the last Android release (Oreo 8.0.0) released by NXP.

When using the system, for example going to the settings menu, I get a lot of graphical lag, and these errors in the kernel log:

[ 263.819436] alloc_contig_range: [32e00, 335ea) PFNs busy
[ 263.863451] alloc_contig_range: [37200, 379ea) PFNs busy

Is this a known problem? Are there any fixes available for this?

Hello,

This is an expected behavior. This is due to the lack of memory that the system has, an example could be the i.MX8M-EVK where the memory is higher than the i.MX6 en the android oreo image runs well. Unfortunately, the only solution could be through hardware. I apologize for the inconveniences this could give you.

Best Regards,

Diego.

I don't think it's due to the lack of memory,  I'm running a very simple example in imx yocto GA release, in such circumstances the total used memory is around 200MB only and my system has 2GB memory but this message still prints. I guess as CMA is a SHARED memory pool, there might be some bugs on memory management.
