Actually that is still wrong: we use dma_coerce_mask_and_coherent() to
annotate drivers that have traditionally been forcing their own dma mask
by some other means and that need to be changed to something proper (after
finding out why they did it in the first place).

Since this is about a child device, the correct interface is to use
platform_device_register_full().

Note that this will still only work on machines that have no dma offset,
iommu, swiotlb, special coherency requirements, or ones that need a
platform specific dma_map_ops. To make any of those work, the driver
would need to be changed to pass the correct device pointer into any
dma-mapping interfaces, so the settings can get set by the platform
code. We will need to do that for arm64 I assume.
