Well, I'm not sure that a half-broken fix should be considered as a fix ;)

Anyway, I just got the comment from Shane, that my patch is fixing the
issues with amdgpu and radeon, while still working fine for exynos, so
it is indeed a proper fix.

Exynos driver use this pages array internally.

True, but in meantime we should avoid breaking stuff which worked fine
for ages.

Yes, I can take a look into removing the use of the internal pages
array. It is used mainly for implementing vmap for fbdev emulation, but
this can be handled in a different way.
