Isn't this going to horribly break testing buffer sharing with SoC
devices? I'd assume they all expect writecombining mode to make sure stuff
is coherent?

Also could we get away with this by simply extending drm_cflush_pages for
those arm platforms where we do have a clflush instruction? Yes I know
that'll get people screaming, I'll shrug :-)

If all we need patch 1/2 for is this vgem patch then the auditing needed for
patch 1 doesn't look appealing ...
