I tried requesting physical memory 0x60000000 of size 0x40000000 mapped
onto virtual 0x60000000 using l4sigma0_map_mem() and am still getting the
error. I also tried a few other smaller sizes like 0x80000000 size
0x20000000 and 0x64000000 size 0x1c000000. But they are all failing as
well.

I thought based on the RAM printout maybe I had to request a portion that
was in restricted to one of the "contiguous blocks" printed out. I think
owner '0' equals Sigma0 and owner '4' equals Root, so Sigma0 should be
able to give me 0x64000000 size 0x1c000000.

Here's some log output:
