vm_map_ram is supposed to generally behave better. So if it doesn't
please report that that to the arch maintainer and linux-mm so that
they can look into the issue. Having user make choices of deep down
kernel internals is just a horrible interface.

Please talk to maintainers of other bits of the kernel if you see issues
and / or need enhancements.
