OK, so the question remains for mips :) how do you prevent kernel memory
from stealing all DMA-capable memory ?
Or do maybe you expect to always have something free in the <512MB list ?
BTW, x86 has <16MB, <4GB and everything else. the <16MB list was not enough to
cover the bus_dma(9) needs. Maybe the <512MB list will, provided it's not
already starved by other needs.
