The arm_cp15_set_translation_table_entries function does help me to setup MMU entry at runtime.

What exactly means the "boundary"? For exemple, is it possible to allocate the memory with a given start address(memory from 0xC100000 to 0xD100000)? Because in my case, the start address and its length is given by GPU.

Actually, I've got everything worked without heap allocate and I've only setup the entry. Is it normal? I know little about how the memory managed and what happened here.
