Two processors sharing the same mutex, one with linux the otherone without

Hello to everyone! I am struggling to make this work, let me share my efforts to make the mutex work between a NIOS2-MMU Linux and a NIOS2- w/o LINUX 

 

My NIOS2 NO-LINUX is running this program: 

 

int main() { alt_putstr("Proc 2!\n"); /* get the mutex device handle */ alt_mutex_dev* mutex = altera_avalon_mutex_open( "/dev/mutex" ); /* acquire the mutex, setting the value to one */ altera_avalon_mutex_trylock( mutex, 1 ); while(1){ if(altera_avalon_mutex_is_mine(mutex)) { usleep(100); alt_printf("%x\n", IORD_32DIRECT(SHARED_MEM_BASE, 0x00)); } altera_avalon_mutex_unlock( mutex ); } return 0; } My Device Driver of the MMU Linux is written here: http://pastebin.com/gwlfqawv 

 

However it is'nt working. When i boot my Linux it says that my Mutex 

is at the adress e0000001c4, i dont understand why it has this "e" in 

the front of the adress? Also it isn't locking because when i lock in 

Linux i still can lock/unlock at NIOS2-NOLINUX 

 

outl(0x00000001, shmem.mutex); 

 

if (inl(shmem.mutex) == 0x00000001) {printk(KERN_INFO "locked\n"); return 1;} 

 

I get the locked message at Linux, however the mutex isnt locking. 

 

Any help is appreciated

Maybe the MMU programming for Kernel space defines this region as non-cached. I don't know if this includes translating the address do 0x000.. for the hardware access.
