Maxime Ripard - Feb. 11, 2019, 3:02 p.m.
The current DT bindings assume that the DMA will be performed by the
devices through their parent DT node, and rely on that assumption for the
address translation using dma-ranges.

However, some SoCs have devices that will perform DMA through another bus,
with separate address translation rules. We therefore need to express that
relationship, through the special interconnect name "dma".
