So you're basically not telling the kernel about the first 32MB of memory.

Which means it won't be part of the kernels normal memory map, and so
won't be in the page pool. So CMA won't be able to help.

Instead, just ignore the first 32MB of RAM, and map it like any other
peripheral to gain access to it. You might need to use ioremap_wc()
to avoid treating the memory as a 'device type' in ARMv6+.
