MmMapIoSpace function (wdm.h)
The MmMapIoSpace routine maps the given physical address range to nonpaged system space.
PVOID MmMapIoSpace( [in] PHYSICAL_ADDRESS PhysicalAddress, [in] SIZE_T NumberOfBytes, [in] MEMORY_CACHING_TYPE CacheType );
Specifies the starting physical address of the I/O range to be mapped.
Specifies a value greater than zero, indicating the number of bytes to be mapped.
Specifies a MEMORY_CACHING_TYPE value, which indicates the cache attribute to use to map the physical address range.
MmMapIoSpace returns the base virtual address that maps the base physical address for the range. If space for mapping the range is insufficient, it returns NULL.
A driver must call this routine during device start-up if it receives translated resources of type CmResourceTypeMemory in a CM_PARTIAL_RESOURCE_DESCRIPTOR structure. MmMapIoSpace maps the physical address returned in the resource list to a logical address through which the driver can access device registers.
MmMapIoSpace should only be used with pages that are locked down (belong to the locked pages of an MDL or I/O space), otherwise the owner of the memory could free it (or the memory could be paged in/out, etc.).
For example, drivers of PIO devices that allocate long-term I/O buffers can call this routine to make such buffers accessible or to make device memory accessible.
