Err....  AFAICS, you've just silently changed the semantics for
kmap_atomic_prot() here.  And while most of the callers are converted,
drivers/gpu/drm/ttm/ttm_bo_util.c one is not, so at the very least it's
a bisect hazard...

And I would argue that having kmap_atomic() differ from kmap_atomic_prot()
wrt disabling preempt is asking for trouble.
