MPC8313e DMA problem with more than 40 bytes

I use DMA to read from PCI.


- The buffer is reserved by kmalloc and aligned to the size of the page

- I limit the transmission to multiples of 8*4 bytes. I use a complete cache line.

- I used direct mode. Now I use chain mode to improve the transfer speed but It's not enough yet.

- I tried with 32, 40 and 48 bytes. When I use 48 bytes the system hangs. I don't see this limitation  anywhere.


any suggestions? Has anyone experienced similar problems with DMA? 


Thanks a lot in advance.
