SubjectRE: Contiguous Memory Allocator on HIGHMEM
Hello,

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.
