CMA memory management core (migration and allocation of pages) should support
areas placed in HIGHMEM without any additional works. The main limitation is
in the DMA-mapping framework. Right now it makes certain assumptions about page
mappings to simplify allocation process. You need to add support for dynamic
mappings there.
