#423 new defect

DMA allocations need to survive address space destruction

The current DMA allocator does not track/lock DMA mappings beyond address space destruction. This can be potentially fatal as a DMA memory once assigned to hardware can be overwritten by the hardware if the original driver dies and the physical frames from its address space are recycled.
