Issue with fb memory allocation is caused by unfuctional (removed)
kernel parameter vram which was removed (replaced by cma parameter) in
v3.8 (commit where removing of vram is described is 
0049fb2603b7afb1080776ee691dfa5a3d282357).

This patchset
1. revert commit: workaround for a problem that the framebuffer with 8 MB cant
be allocated...
2. enable CMA in gta04_defconfig
3. add cma parameter to bootargs

Marek Belisko (3):
  Revert "workaround for a problem that the framebuffer with 8 MB cant
    be allocated; this was NOT necessary on a 3.7 kernel, so this might
    be the wrong solution to a yet to be discovered problem"
  gta04_defconfig: Enable CMA (Contiguous Memory Allocator).
  bootargs.txt : Add handling for cma kernel parameter.
