This is for the AHB audio driver, and is a correct default on two counts:

1. It is historically usual to initialise DMA masks to 32-bit, and leave
it to the device drivers to negotiate via the DMA mask functions if
they wish to use higher orders of bits.

2. The AHB audio hardware in the HDMI block only supports 32-bit addresses.

What I've missed from the AHB audio driver is calling the DMA mask
functions... oops. Patch below.

This is for the I2S audio driver, and I suspect is wrong - I doubt
that the I2S sub-device itself does any DMA what so ever.

DMA drivers are supposed to negotiate the DMA mask with the DMA API,
but this was missing from the AHB audio driver. Add the necessary
