Question device to simulate physical memory with PCI device


Is it possible to develope a device driver for Compact PCI device to simulate "physical memory" under LINUX? It means expanding LINUX's physical memory by using special purpose Compact PCI device.

are you trying to use the device in question's native ram as an extension of your system's physical memory? i really hope you have a good reason for doing this... lol this really seems like one of those questions that trolls sometimes ask... i apologize if youre totally serious though...
