Go find your dirties pair shoes, you may want to throw at me.
I have had some success with my other toy projects and learned quite a bit. A lot of the DMA related details were hidden, so I haven't had to deal with it.
So, continuing on, I want to do the data processing on the Windows system instead of this external device - Still using the pre-existing FPGA to DMA the data.
1. In my KMDF driver, I create a common buffer.
2. Using the logical address I get from WdfCommonBufferGetAlignedLogicalAddress, I create a list of logical addresses, using the same page-size as that of the external device.
-- I figured this was safe since the CommonBuffer allocation is contiguous in the logical addresses space.
-- Note: Physical Page addresses doesn't matter since my User SW will be using the virtual address while the FPGA DMA will be using the logical addresses.
3. I get the Kernel Virtual Address by calling WdfCommonBufferGetAlignedVirtualAddress.
My question (drum roll) How can I convert the Kernel virtual address to a User virtual address so that my User SW can gain access to the data?
Thank again everyone for your patience and continuing help.
