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.
