results. If the problem is solved, change the tag 'verification-needed-
wily' to 'verification-done-wily'.

But, with 4K pages and a MAX_ZONEORDER of 11, we can only allocate
32K. The upstream approach to resolve this will likely be to make the
core GIC a proper device that can use the DMA API:
However - that's a pretty big change, and will take a while to land.
Until that time, I propose that we bump MAX_ZONEORDER up to 13 for the
