Subject[PATCH v2 2/2] amba: Initialize dma_parms for amba devices
It's currently the amba driver's responsibility to initialize the pointer,
dma_parms, for its corresponding struct device. The benefit with this
approach allows us to avoid the initialization and to not waste memory for
the struct device_dma_parameters, as this can be decided on a case by case

However, it has turned out that this approach is not very practical. Not
only does it lead to open coding, but also to real errors. In principle
callers of dma_set_max_seg_size() doesn't check the error code, but just
assumes it succeeds.

For these reasons, let's do the initialization from the common amba bus at
the device registration point. This also follows the way the PCI devices
are being managed, see pci_device_add().

Changes in v2:
- Move initialization to amba_device_initialize() to be more consistent
with how we manage platform devices.
