    I don't think so. I wasn't very experienced with kernel programming that
    time and just copied code from another driver. Actually I think we don't
    really need all this rvmalloc()/rvfree() magic we just need to use
    remap_vmalloc_range() instead of remap_pfn_range().

    Regards, Ilya.
