As far as I can tell, the x86 arches do warn.

Maybe all of the OOM messages should just be
deleted and let's see if anyone complains.

Perhaps also the memsets to zero following the
allocs could be removed by adding __GFP_ZERO
instead of introducing new functions/macros
like dma_zalloc_consistent.

For instance, maybe something like this for the
dma_alloc_consistent cases:

-------------------------------------

dma_alloc_consistent for x86 already gets a
standardized OOM message and a dump_stack() which
makes the specific OOM message unnecessary.

Remove those dma_alloc_consistent OOM messages.

For the code involved with the alloc:

Remove unnecessary casts.
Align arguments.
Replace any memset to 0 with __GFP_ZERO.
Miscellaneous whitespace neatening.
