Looks as if it should be possible:

arch/i386/kernel/uncached.c

code 'seems' to allow such a thing to happen....*BUT*, I'm not sure as to what precautions and rules you need to obey should you wish to do this!

http://www.linuxhq.com/kernel/v2.6/13/lib/genalloc.c

seems to imply that genalloc should be used for requesting uncached memory.

Never done this before, and have no knowledge of the limits or restrictive guidelines I'm afraid:(
