Good idea. Should it be a warning when it is first being set up or
a warning the first time the bounce buffers need to be used. Or maybe
both?

I'll look into this. It might be something that can be checked as
part of the device setting its DMA mask or the first time a DMA
API is used if the device doesn't explicitly set its mask.
