Subject[PATCH v2 1/2] driver core: platform: Initialize dma_parms for platform devices
It's currently the platform 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 basis.

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 platform 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 setup_pdev_dma_masks(). This means the
initialization is done also in the OF path.
