Sorry, telling people that CMA is required to avoid that is just not an
acceptable "solution".

With CMA not enabled, the DMA memory provided to the driver is still
perfectly valid and should be no different from what CMA provides.

I'd strongly suggest investigating why there is this difference, and
what the difference is - I'd assume freescale have the ability to do
that with their own devices much more than I have, and probably to a
greater depth too - especially as there is no possibility what so ever
of using any kind of hardware debug on the iMX6 platforms I have.
