SubjectRe: a saner API for allocating DMA addressable pages v3
Any comments?

Thomas: this should be identical to the git tree I gave you for mips
testing, and you add your tested-by (and reviewd-by tags where
applicable)?

Helge: for parisc this should effectively be the same as the first
version, but I've dropped the tested-by tags due to the reshuffle,
and chance you could retest it?
