Isn't this a rather poor workaround? All this means is that if we fail
to set a 32-bit DMA mask, we're likely to blow up at runtime instead of
at initialization time, when we get a DMA mapping over 4GB.

If setting 32-bit DMA mask fails on ppc64, that sounds like a problem
with the DMA implementation on that architecture. There are enough cards
out there that only support 32-bit DMA that this really needs to work..
