VPU memory reservation and debugging with Device Trees

Are there any examples on how to configure how much memory is available / reserved for VPU and GPU, and what address range they use, using device tree files? I know that you can use the CONFIG_CMA_SIZE_MBYTES option in the kernel configuration, but as I understand it, the device tree would give finer control over contiguous memory allocation.

 

The root of the problem is that I want to be able to debug the memory allocation better. I know that I can do real time 30 FPS FHD transcoding on my i.MX6, but memory hungry processes make the VPU lag behind. I want not only to reserve memory for the VPU, but also to debug whether it actually gets access to all the memory I reserve, or if it gets used by other processes on the arm cores.
