This looks like a bodge in the wrong place. Either the device
registration is incorrect in that it advertises DMA when none is
available or the SPI driver ought to be offering the MMC driver a more
sensible way of advertising this limitation. My first thought is the
former but I didn't check where dma_mask is getting set.
