Sounds like a good idea since we're only have few days left before the merge window. > Ah, I think I see the problem - once arch/arm's __dma_alloc() has decided to > use CMA (because dev_get_cma_area(dev) returns the global area), it then > won't fall back to trying a regular page allocation if > dma_alloc_from_contiguous() returns NULL.
