Not quite: I can also read the BARs that I program, and the memory
behind them on the PPC.

I can program them at run time via sysfs on the PPC's side, so there is
no single set of values. However, I am pointing them at the PPC's RAM
space, and as I stated above, I can read the PPC's RAM from the host
side via the BARs.

As I understand it, not if the OWS is not correctly mapped on the PPC
side - the PEX outbound ATMU's OWBAR must be mapped to a region of the
PPCs address space that is also mapped to PEX in the LAW. The LAW does
NOT indicate that PPC address 0 is mapped to the PEX.

I have tried disabling the outbound ATMU when I program it, with no
I have looked at the functions you mention, and that is a part of my
confusion, as they aren't doing anything different than I am.

I have tried doing this under a kernel built without PCI support with no
