Yes, I can confirm that the warning is gone in -next. Problem solved,
except of course there are still the warnings about the missing
coherent_dma_mask.

sm501-usb sm501-usb: SM501 OHCI
sm501-usb sm501-usb: new USB bus registered, assigned bus number 1
WARNING: CPU: 0 PID: 1 at ./include/linux/dma-mapping.h:516 ohci_init+0x194/0x2d8

Is that warning also not warranted for the given use case, or is
the missing mask indeed necessary ? It is easy to add - see
https://lore.kernel.org/patchwork/patch/971411/ - but I do wonder
if that change is appropriate.

Thanks,
Guenter
