Its likely due to the changes I made in the separate
non-default-CMA-region patch set. Earlier I had gotten away with just
your change, but in testing before I sent this series, I hit the build
error and quickly added the export before sending.

I'll revise and respin this. Mostly just wanting to get initial
feedback on the dmabuf-heaps-as-modules bit, so I didn't take as much
care as I should have with the exports here.
