Default Physical memory request to Linux Kernel

Hello,

I am running a multithreaded program for which I'm in need of acquiring some physical memory from linux kernel.

malloc() gives virtually memory mapped memory and then MMU translates that into physical memory...

Can someone show me the way to allocate Physical memory directly on linux? (without routing through virtual)

Thanks,
Tanmay
