    That would return memory that is not guaranteed to be within the first
    16MB of address space, so a GFP_DMA allocation would succeed with memory
    not from ZONE_DMA. That's an invalid configuration, so users, including
    you, should at least edit their .config by hand to enable CONFIG_ZONE_DMA
    as a workaround. Then, we should try to fix up the Kconfig entries for
    drivers requiring DMA allocations to select CONFIG_ZONE_DMA or fix
    defconfigs when DMA is known to be needed for a device.
