More likely would be a device driver that is DMA mapping memory but not
unmapping it after it is done resulting in the bounce buffer pool being
depleted.

You might want dump the list of drivers loaded on the system with lsmod,
and then possibly look at doing a git bisect for something introduced
between 3.17 and 3.18 since that seems to be when you started seeing
this issue.
