Are you really convinced fixing this in DRM is the right thing to do? To
me, the use of vmalloc_32() in drivers/ieee1394/ seems to make similar
assumptions (pci_map_sg() not modifying the buffer addresses), and
who knows where else such assumptions exist. After all, vmalloc_32()
is *defined* to have the property assumed by both of the users, and
other than for most kmalloc() cases using GFP_DMA{,32} we're talking
about double buffering generally large amounts of data here even in
the cases where the DMA API is being used properly.
