Known issue. vm_map_ram() won't let us pass GFP_NOFS, so it does
GFP_KERNEL allocations in places that cause lockdep to go nuts. This
one here is not going to deadlock, but there are other cases where
it potentially could...

The VM folk refuse to allow us to pass gfp flags, so we're stuck
we're stuck with this lockdep noise.
