    The 4GB boundary here is MAX_DMA32_ADDRESS I guess? We are only having
    this problem because of the two DMA zones on x86_64. I thought Andi was
    getting rid of the first one at 16MB. If he would do so then ZONE_DMA
    could be used instead of DMA32 and everything will be fine.

    For now you may want to put

    #ifdef CONFIG_ZONE_DMA32

    around this code since it depends on DMA32.
