Since we know what the hardware physically looks like we should be able
to write a DT binding which can be stable for both before and after the
DPCM transition. The bindings would have to be truly awful to require a
rewrite here and as with all the DMA wrapper drivers if parts of DPCM
that don't reflect actual hardware are appearing in the DT we're doing
something wrong.
