 If I recally correctly it couldn't.

 Yes. That's the main reason that it uses a wired mapping.
 (Another reason is to reduce number of necessary TLB entries.)

 If I recall correctly, it doesn't use already mapped entry.
 Rather, it use a new wired entry which is mapped via
 arc_large_bus_space_compose_handle(), because the region of the
 already mapped entry is	0x100000000 ... 0x100ffffff,
 but the address of framebuffer begins from 0x108200000.
