That was dead-on, thanks a lot!

I did then bump into a different allocation failure which happened
because dma_alloc_from_contiguous() computes 'mask' before capping the
'align' argument.

The early 'mask' computation was added in v18 (and therefore exists in
v19 too) and I was actually testing v17 previously, so I didn't notice
it before.

You may want to squash something like this:

diff --git a/drivers/base/dma-contiguous.c b/drivers/base/dma-contiguous.c
index f41e699..8455cb7 100644
--- a/drivers/base/dma-contiguous.c

Thanks,
Ohad.
