lima driver needs writecombine mapped buffer for GPU hardware
working properly due to CPU-GPU not cache coherent. Although we
haven't meet problems caused by kernel/user map conflict, but I
do admit it's a problem as I met with amdgpu+arm before.

With TTM we can control page allocated and create a pool for
writecombine pages, but seems shmem is not friendly with
writecombine pages.
