kernel: how do pci-memory a conventional memory?

Help me, please!
What need i do to do subj?
i.e. Linux OS must has ability to allocate that memory for executable
programs and for misc data.
or - may be Linux has ready mechanism to do that?
Thanks a much!

PS. Target platphorm is SAPRC32, but it could be useful on any others.

PSS. as i understood after learning kernel code - it may be enought to fill sp_banks during POST and then mem_init will use it.
