    Subject[PATCH 02/18] mfd: mfd-core: Don't overwrite the dma_mask of the child device
    Commit cdfee5623290 ("driver core: initialize a default DMA mask for
    platform device") initialize the DMA of a platform device. But if the
    parent doesn't have a dma_mask set, for example if it's an I2C device,
    the dma_mask of the child platform device will be set to zero again.
    Which leads to many "DMA mask not set" warnings, if the MFD cell has the
    of_compatible property set.

    [ 1.877937] sl28cpld-pwm sl28cpld-pwm: DMA mask not set
    [ 1.883282] sl28cpld-pwm sl28cpld-pwm.0: DMA mask not set
    [ 1.888795] sl28cpld-gpio sl28cpld-gpio: DMA mask not set

    Thus don't overwrite the dma_mask of the children. Instead set the
    dma_mask of the platform device.
