And all SCSI buffers are allocated using kmalloc? No way at all for user

Most that you will see actually comes from the page allocator. But
the block layer has a dma_alignment limit, and when userspace sends
I/O that is not properly aligned it will be bounce buffered before
it it sent to the driver.
That limit is set to L1_CACHE_BYTES on m68k so we're good here.
