Can't we come up with a version of dma_request_slave_channel that works
both ways for now:

mcspi_dma->dma_rx =
dma_request_slave_channel_compat(mask, omap_dma_filter_fn, &sig,
&master->dev, mcspi_dma->dma_rx_ch_name);
...

Then it's just question of patching away two lines later on rather than
having to add all this if else to all the drivers first, then patching
it away again.

Regards,

Tony
