You want to mmap() the dma_handle, not the CPU pointer.

In driver I have an IOCTL option IO_DMA_ALLOC to allocate the DMA buffer by using pci_alloc_consistent() and return the allocated physical address to user space.
In user space testing program:
1. Call IOCTL IO_DMA_ALLOC to allocate a 64Kbyte DMA buffer. The physical address of the allocated buffer is 0x03bb0000.
2. Open /dev/mem and call mmap(0,64*1024,PROT_READ|PROT_WRITE,MAP_SHARED,fd,0x03bb0000) ;  
the return of mmap is -1.
