Jesse, mind picking this up for .32?

I've attached below a slightly cleaned up version of the patch, with 
Takashi's ack added.

Thanks,

Rather than forcing GFP flags and DMA mask to be inconsistent,
GFP flags should be determined even for the fallback device
through dma_alloc_coherent_mask()/dma_alloc_coherent_gfp_flags().

This restores 64-bit behavior as it was prior to commits
8965eb19386fdf5ccd0ef8b02593eb8560aa3416 and
4a367f3a9dbf2e7ffcee4702203479809236ee6e (not sure why there are
two of them), where GFP_DMA was forced on for 32-bit, but not
for 64-bit, with the slight adjustment that afaict even 32-bit
doesn't need this without CONFIG_ISA.
