    Has anyone addressed my issue with it that this is wide-open for
    abuse by allocating large chunks of memory, and then remapping
    them in some way with different attributes, thereby violating the
    ARM architecture specification?

    In other words, do we _actually_ have a use for this which doesn't
    involve doing something like allocating 32MB of memory from it,
    remapping it so that it's DMA coherent, and then performing DMA
    on the resulting buffer?
