For these cma nodes yes, I thought you meant reserved memory areas in

Just as a side note, I'm not a huge fan of the cma_for_each_area() to
begin with, it seems a bit out of place when they could be selectively
added as heaps as needed. Not sure how that will work with cma nodes
specifically assigned to devices, seems like we could just steal their
memory space from userspace with this..
