AFAICS, just like the ARM code from which it is derived, that will
always return a non-cacheable remap of the allocation, which should thus
not require explicit maintenance after CPU accesses. dma_cache_sync()
would only matter if dma_alloc_attrs(..., DMA_ATTR_NON_CONSISTENT) got
special treatment and was allowed to return a cacheable address, but PPC
doesn't even propagate the attrs to its internal __dma_alloc_coherent()
implementations.
