Yes.

I am willing to help to get this resolved soonish. However, I have
issues with the approach.

It looks like a workaround to me. It would be interesting to hear which
I2C client breaks with DMA and if it's driver can't be fixed somehow
instead. But even if we agree on a workaround short term, adding a
binding for this workaround seems like a no-go to me. We have to live
with this binding forever. Sidenote: I could think of a generic
'disable-dma' which could be reused everywhere but we probably won't get
that upstream that late in the cycle.

Is there no other way to disable DMA which is local to this driver so we
can easily revert the workaround later?
