Subject: [PATCH 15/16] dma-mapping: clear __GFP_COMP in dma_alloc_attrs

Lift the code to clear __GFP_COMP from arm into the common DMA
allocator path.  For one this fixes the various other patches that
call alloc_pages_exact or split_page in case a bogus driver passes
the argument, and it also prepares for doing exact allocation in
the generic dma-direct allocator.
