Sorry, I meant supporting multiple DMA offsets[1]. I think I could still make
it with a single DMA mask though.

IIUC I also have this issue on my list. The RPi4 PCIe block has an integration
bug that only allows DMA to the lower 3GB. With dma-ranges of size 0xc000_0000
you get a 32bit DMA mask wich is not what you need. So far I faked it in the
device-tree but I guess it be better to add an extra check in
of_dma_configure(), decrease the mask and print some kind of warning stating
that DMA addressing is suboptimal.

Nicolas
