I don't think that is true upstream, and if it is we need to fix bug
in the powerpc code. powerpc should be falling back treating a 48-bit
dma mask like a 32-bit one at least, that is use dynamic iommu mappings
instead of using the direct mapping. And from my reding of
arch/powerpc/kernel/dma-iommu.c that is exactly what it does.
