Use of OEMDeviceTable in EC7 to configure uncached memory region

Hi,

I'm attempting to configure an area of memory that is uncached to address an issue I am having using the MS NOR strataflash driver. This is an Embedded Compact 7-based platform using an ARM processor. I've posted a related entry on this issue where I used a different approach to this problem. There I am using the MmMapIoSpace API to map this uncached region but am getting an alignment problem when using the NOR driver.

https://community.freescale.com/thread/307341

A different approach is to use the OEMDeviceTable to hard configure an uncached region for the NOR device. I've followed the instructions in the MSDN documentation. It looks straightforward but the system hangs somewhere in OS startup with no indication of what is wrong. The bootloader jumps to the image and then simply hangs.  Here's the relevant piece of the oemaddrtab_cfg.inc file

ALIGN

; TABLE FORMAT
;       uncached address, physical address, size, attributes

g_oalDeviceTable
    DCD 0x9D000000, CSP_BASE_MEM_PA_CS0/256, 1, 0      ; NOR Flash (uncached)
    DCD 0x00000000, 0x00000000, 0 , 0                   ; Terminate table

    DCD 0x00000000, 0x00000000, 0                       ; Terminate table

Is there anything obviously wrong here? Has anyone successfully used the OEMDeviceTable and are there any known issues? There seems little information about it on the forums.

Perhaps there is a different approach to address the problem?

Thanks,

Bruno

This is going back a long time. We have moved on from this approach and this issue is not relevant any more.
