There is code in the kernel which, rightly or wrongly, checks whether
dev->dma_mask is NULL to determine whether the device can do any kind
of DMA. The above results in devices allocated via this interface
always having this member set, which is a change of core kernel behaviour.

How sure are you that this will not break anything?

FTTC broadband for 0.8mile line: now at 9.7Mbps down 460kbps up... slowly
improving, and getting towards what was expected from it.
