All the above platforms checks out to be using k[un]map_atomic(). I am wondering whether
any of the intermediate levels will have similar problems on any these 32 bit platforms
or any other platforms which might be using generic k[un]map_atomic(). There can be many
permutations here.

p4dp = p4d_alloc(mm, pgdp, vaddr);
pudp = pud_alloc(mm, p4dp, vaddr);
pmdp = pmd_alloc(mm, pudp, vaddr);

Otherwise pte_alloc_map()/pte_unmap() looks good enough which will atleast take care of
a known failure.
