    No, you're exactly right, I'm just a muppet and missed the obvious.
    Looks like the "correct" fix is the fact that the allocation is thus
    filled out with GFP_USER, therefore, from ZONE_NORMAL, and below

    Looks like we'll need some additional thinking to get true ZONE_DMA32 on
    i386... ugh, I'll look into it tonight.

    regards, Kyle
