We should only have one type of memory per heap so all mappings will
have the same type. That should solve the ARM specific issues, but I'm
guessing you are thinking of more tricky architectures where all
mappings need to be tracked and cleaned/invalidated..
For that I think we will have to track each right? How do others handle
that, we can't be the first to offer cached buffers to userspace.
