Hi,

@Andre, IIRC you originally added the support for sunxi in Xen. Could 
you have a look at this patch?

Cheers,

Looks alright, and indeed the H6 needs it. Even though Allwinner totally re-arranged the memory map, they missed the opportunity to put each device at least in their own 4K page.

If you can wait till this evening, I can even test it.

It's actually a shame that we need this enumeration, when all we are after is an answer to the question: Does a device used by Xen share a 4K page with a device handed off to Dom0? It sounds like a nice rainy afternoon exercise to scan the DT to find those devices automatically and mask them (on the A64 for instance UART4 is on a different page).

Cheers,
Andre

Thank you for the review!

I can wait until tomorrow before comitting the patch.

I agree and I think we discussed about it before :). I would welcome 
such improvement in Xen, this would actually allow us to drop sunxi.c 
completely.

I booted Xen 4.12.1 to the Dom0 prompt on the Pine H64, and saw all the serial devices in /sys/firmware/devicetree/base/soc. Then I applied the patch, and the serial devices were gone. And yes, all the four main serial ports share one 4K page on the H6.

Andre.
