I have my doubts

vmap(pages, n_pages, VM_MAP, PAGE_KERNEL_NOCACHE);
vmap(pages, n_pages, VM_MAP, PAGE_KERNEL);

is the right "fix" for this...

BTW, PAGE_KERNEL_NOCACHE is defined on frv, m32r, mn10300, sh, and x86 only.

Strangely, both sparc and tile have

* Some hardware wants to get fixmapped without caching.
#define set_fixmap_nocache(idx, phys) \
__set_fixmap(idx, phys, PAGE_KERNEL_NOCACHE)

in their <asm/fixmap.h>, without having PAGE_KERNEL_NOCACHE...

when I'm talking to journalists I just say "programmer" or something like that.
