LWN tells me we don't need carve outs any more[1]: "CMA now relies on 
compaction and no longer uses a carved-out memory region."

So why do we need this?

Convention is vendor,thing and 'dma_heap' is not a vendor. Also, '-' is 
preferred over '_'.

Page size depends on Linux configuration. And 'order' is very much a 
Linuxism.
