They use a few others things still like __GFP_COMP, __GPF_DMA or
GFP_HUGEPAGE.  But all these are bogus as we have various implementations
that can't respect them.  I plan to get rid of the gfp_t argument
in the dma_map_ops alloc method in a few merge windows because of that,
but it needs further implementation consolidation first.
