Do you know if these rely on the offsets?  E.g. would they still work
with the patch below applied on top.  That would keep the map_resource
semantics as-is as solve the issue pointed out by Robin for now.

If not I can only think of a flag to bypass the offseting for now, but
that would be pretty ugly.  Or go for the long-term solution of
discovering the relationship between the two devices, as done by the
PCIe P2P code..

AFAIK that code was only used for sharing buffers between hardware
modules that are a part of the same SoC, usually implemented as platform
devices. AFAIR this never worked for devices on different buses. So far
I wasn't aware on ANY which would require an offset for the DMA access.

The first version of videobuf2-dc code even incorrectly used paddr
instead of dma_addr as a buffer 'address' returned to the client
drivers, because in case of those SoC this was exactly the same (see
commits 472af2b05bdefcaee7e754e22cbf131110017ad6 and
ba7fcb0c954921534707f08ebc4d8beeb2eb17e7).

Hi Marek,

can chance you could retest the v2 version?
