[PATCH] mfd: mfd-core: Don't overwrite the dma_mask of the child device

From: Michael Walle
Date: Thu Jun 04 2020 - 17:30:54 EST

Commit cdfee5623290 ("driver core: initialize a default DMA mask for
platform device") initialize the DMA of a platform device. But if the
parent doesn't have a dma_mask set, for example if it's an I2C device,
the dma_mask of the child platform device will be set to zero again.
Which leads to many "DMA mask not set" warnings, if the MFD cell has the
of_compatible property set.

[ 1.877937] sl28cpld-pwm sl28cpld-pwm: DMA mask not set
[ 1.883282] sl28cpld-pwm sl28cpld-pwm.0: DMA mask not set
[ 1.888795] sl28cpld-gpio sl28cpld-gpio: DMA mask not set

Thus don't overwrite the dma_mask of the children. Instead set the
dma_mask of the platform device.

Former discussion was here:

Because my MFD driver now uses of_platform_populate() it doesn't trigger
this anymore. But it may be useful for others, e.g. if I'm not mistaken it
should apply to the mt6360 sub devices.

Thus I'm submitting this patch seperately.
