As the patch has been out for RFC since early April on the linux-arm-kernel
mailing list (Subject: [RFC] Prohibit ioremap() on kernel managed RAM),

The restriction on creation of multiple V:P mappings with differing
attributes is also fairly hard to miss in the ARM architecture
specification when reading the sections about caches.
