How is ttm_dma_tt->dma_address allocated? I cannot find any assignment
executed (in the working code):

$ git grep dma_address\ = drivers/gpu/
drivers/gpu/drm/amd/amdgpu/amdgpu_amdkfd_gpuvm.c:       sg->sgl->dma_address = addr;
drivers/gpu/drm/amd/amdgpu/amdgpu_ttm.c:                dma_address = &dma->dma_address[offset >> PAGE_SHIFT];
drivers/gpu/drm/amd/amdgpu/amdgpu_ttm.c:                dma_address = (mm_node->start << PAGE_SHIFT) + offset;
drivers/gpu/drm/i915/gvt/scheduler.c:   sg->dma_address = addr;
drivers/gpu/drm/i915/i915_gpu_error.c:  sg->dma_address = it;
drivers/gpu/drm/ttm/ttm_tt.c:   ttm->dma_address = (void *) (ttm->ttm.pages + ttm->ttm.num_pages);
drivers/gpu/drm/ttm/ttm_tt.c:   ttm->dma_address = kvmalloc_array(ttm->ttm.num_pages,
drivers/gpu/drm/ttm/ttm_tt.c:   ttm_dma->dma_address = NULL;
drivers/gpu/drm/vmwgfx/vmwgfx_ttm_buffer.c:             viter->dma_address = &__vmw_piter_phys_addr;
drivers/gpu/drm/vmwgfx/vmwgfx_ttm_buffer.c:             viter->dma_address = &__vmw_piter_dma_addr;
drivers/gpu/drm/vmwgfx/vmwgfx_ttm_buffer.c:             viter->dma_address = &__vmw_piter_sg_addr;

The 2 cases in ttm_tt.c are in ttm_dma_tt_alloc_page_directory() and
ttm_sg_tt_alloc_page_directory().
Confirmed by adding printk()s that they're NOT called.
