A solution to that would be to do what the warning message says, and
update the driver to the DMAengine API.

The reason it didn't get updated when the DMAengine conversion happened
is because I don't have hardware for it, so had no way to test, and no
one seemed to know that anyone was using it. Eventually, the WARN_ON()
was added to try and root out any users and generate interest in
updating the drivers. Obviously that didn't happen, because people
just worked around the warning rather than saying anything.

I'm afraid we're long past the time that I'd be willing to update the
omap_udc driver now as I've dropped most of my knowledge on that as
it's been four years, and Peter has been looking after OMAP DMAengine
issues since.
