Hum, it looks very much like the intention here was to map all bars at

The offsets corresponding to the downlink, uplink, etc. regions are
retrieved as part of the config table by nozomi_read_config_table().

Unfortunately I don't own test devices, so I will not be able to verify it
myself. This is easy to test, though: if I am right, this patch breaks the

I guess the right way to map all bars in a single buffer would look like
what the hifn_795x driver does[0].

I will provide a patch if somebody is available to test it.
