Yes.

-ENOPARSE. What is not possbile ~~ take from mapping_gfp flags.
Could you clarify your statement?

CMA pages is for pages for user, NOT kernel so HIGHUSER_MOVABLE makes sense.

We have to recomment use of highmem for user space pages.
Am I missing something?

Sorry, I should go out of office now so forgive my late response.
