So, this patchset is obviously withdrawn since

a) We shouldn't have TTM shortcut the dma API in this way.
b) To reviewers it was pretty unclear why this was needed in the first
place, and became
even more unclear in the context of the TTM fault handler.

I've just send out an RFC patchset that basically does the same but in
the context of dma_mmap_coherent() I hope this clears things up and we
should hopefully be able to use a new
dma API function from within the TTM fault handler.

Thanks,

Thomas
