Subject[BISECTED REGRESSION] b43legacy broken on G4 PowerBook

When upgrading from v5.0 -> v5.1 on G4 PowerBook, I noticed WLAN does
not work anymore:

[ 42.004303] b43legacy-phy0: Loading firmware version 0x127, patch level 14 (2005-04-18 02:36:27)
[ 42.184837] b43legacy-phy0 debug: Chip initialized
[ 42.184873] b43legacy-phy0 ERROR: The machine/kernel does not support the required 30-bit DMA mask

The same happens with the current mainline.

Bisected to:

commit 65a21b71f948406201e4f62e41f06513350ca390
Author: Christoph Hellwig <>

powerpc/dma: remove dma_nommu_dma_supported

This function is largely identical to the generic version used
everywhere else. Replace it with the generic version.
