The CMA area itself it a physical memory region.  If it is a non-highmem
region you can call virt_to_page on the virtual addresses for it.  If
it is in highmem it doesn't even have a kernel virtual address by

I think this should work fine.  If you have the cycles for it I'd
actually love to be able to have generic CMA DT glue for non DMA API
driver allocations, as there obviously is a need for it.  So basically
the same as above, just added to kernel/cma.c as a generic API.
