I meant that the code that was moved in the patch "Remove
plat-omap/common.c" is only compiled and ran on omap1, when the old
omapfb has been enabled in the Kconfig. It's not used on omap2+.

old omapfb uses dma_alloc_*() to allocate memory, so if CMA works on
omap1, I think this code in question can be removed, as done in my patch.
