Subject: [PATCH v2 RFC/RFT 2/5] dma-remap: Run alloc_pages() on failure

The CMA allocation will skip allocations of single pages to save CMA
resource. This requires its callers to rebound those page allocations
from normal area.

So this patch moves the alloc_pages() call to the fallback routines.
