Do you mean, we fall back to DMA?

This is the most local low-impact solution (nomenclature aside).

The beautiful thing about this approach is that, *if* the Geni SE DMA
ever starts working, we can remove the C code and any old properties
left in older DTs just become NOOP. Older kernels with newer DTs
(less of a priority) *still* won't work, but they don't work now
anyway.

NB: QCom have also made it pretty clear that DTBs *must* match their
kernel version. I know this is controversial amongst DT purists, but
it's still how QCom operate.

The offending line can be found at [0]. There is no obvious bug to
fix and this code obviously works well on some of the hardware
platforms using it. But on our platform (Lenovo Yoga C630 - QCom
SMD850) that final command, which initiates the DMA transaction, ends
up rebooting the machine.

With regards to the nomenclature, my original suggestion was
'qcom,geni-se-no-dma'. Would that better suit your request?
