I think the first step is to resurrect my original patch to default
to a 32-bit DMA mask for platform devices, as that will cut a lot
of crap from the platform device declarations.

IIRC the problem back then was that USB uses the fact that a DMA
mask exist to decide if it uses a DMA vs PIO path in the HCD core.

So I'll need some help from Greg or other USB folks to clean that up,
after that we can try to apply my patch again (preferably early in
the next merge window), and once that sticks clean up all the 32-bit
dma mask initialization for platform devices, and then turn the dma_mask
into a scalar.
