NAK. I don't think you appreciate the contexts from which the dma coherent
code can be called from, and the reason why we pre-allocate the page
tables (so that IRQ-based allocations work.)

The vmalloc region doesn't allow that because page tables are allocated
using GFP_KERNEL not GFP_ATOMIC.

Sorry.
