None of our device code supports interrupt based device removal. In fact
many drivers use vmalloc directly so will hit the same problem the
pci_consistent_free hits on the ARM.

I suspect we should fix the documentation (and if need be the code) to reflect
the fact that you have to be completely out of your tree to handle device
removal in the irq handler
