Right, x86 support is very basic, mainly for being able to test it on standard 
configuration with QEmu.

I think that all*config are broken on ARM. To enable CMA compilation, one need to 
select a subplatform based on ARMv6+ - for example one can start from 
arch/arm/configs/exynos4_defconfig and then use oldnoconfig.

I've rebased the CMA patchset on top of next-20120222 kernel tree and I will send 
them soon as v23.

I hope this will help getting them merged to your tree. If I should select different
base for the patches, just let me know.
