Thanks for investigating all this!

I also conducted some tests and found that the H5 has its SRAM C1
(marked as SRAM C in the manual) at 0x18000. However for the A64, SRAM
C1 gets mapped to 0x1D00000. There is also SRAM C at 0x18000 but this
one seems unrelated to the VPU and only used by DE2 (as already
described in the A64 dt).

I share your conclusion that there seems to be more than SRAM in there.
Testing with devmem write/read on the start address was reliable as a
test, but some chunks in the range did not behave like SRAM (not the
same value read).

I agree that we should keep the known full range as there are lots of
unknowns here.

Cheers,

Paul
