I am not sure if any of the DaVinci devices have a need to allocate from
*both* ARM RAM and shared RAM. Shared RAM is not present on all DaVinci
devices AFAIR, and on DA850, there is just 8KB ARM RAM so I am not sure
if there is much point in trying to allocate from there.
Can you instead see if Ben's earlier patch to use shared RAM for SRAM
allocation on DA850 makes sense for your case? If yes, can you repost
with Ben's patch included in your series instead of this patch? I would
prefer that over creating a new pool for shared RAM.
