    You mean if we don't pass in the TTM_PAGE_FLAG_DMA32? It will go back
    to using the old mechanism - which is to allocate page using
    alloc_page(GFP_HIGHUSER). Which should be OK in baremetal or
    virtualized environment - and as long as the driver uses the page
    for non-DMA type things, or the graphic card is 64-bit capable at which
    point it has no trouble reaching it.

    Thank you! Much appreciated. Would it be OK if I pinged you in two weeks
    time just in case?
