Unless I'm missing something, there is 1024 32-bit values in one 4K
page, which can point to 4 MB of memory. The code allocates 8 of them,
which in total allows at most 32 MB per buffer.

This is rather unfortunate and you should expect failures here on
actively used systems with uptime longer than few hours. Changing this
to dma_alloc_coherent() and enabling CMA _might_ give you a bit better
success rate, but...
Normally, this kind of (scatter-gather capable) hardware would allow
some kind of linking of separate pages, e.g. last entry in the page
would point to the next page, or something like that. Doesn't this RGA
block have something similar?
