I didn't realize I needed to CC someone. How may I find suitable reviewers?

I don't think there is a specific 24-bit device in mind here, only
that we have seen 32-bit addressing use cases where the guest ran out
of SWIOTLB space and restricting to GFP_DMA32 helped.. so we thought
it would be natural for the driver to handle the 24 bit case in case
it ever came along.
