It just handles them correctly. Available MEMF_24BITDMA memory
is used with the alloc_z2mem() function to allocate bounce buffers
where necessary.

The gtsc driver even knows about '25bit DMA' which is a special
construct for a SCSI+RAM-Card where the SCSI controller can
use DMA to the local RAM even when this is mapped outside the
Z-II address space.
