It's not a dmaengine driver. It's a serial UART driver that happens to
use a dedicated DMA engine.

It's unclear whether it should be split into two drivers, or just have
the serial driver directly use the dma engine since that engine is
dedicated in HW to only work on those UARTs and nothing else...
