Unable to correctly mmap DMA buffer in user space.view story

http://www.linuxquestions.org – I have developed a driver for a PCI Express card which we also developed. The driver allocates a 16kB DMA buffer using pci_alloc_consistent() which the user space application will mmap(). The problem is the virtual address returned by mmap() in user space cannot seem to access the memory buffer. I test it by writing a known value to the user virtual address. (HowTos)
