I suspect this bit of code in dmaengine is the culprit:

/* redistribute available channels */
n = 0;
for_each_dma_cap_mask(cap, dma_cap_mask_all)
for_each_online_cpu(cpu) {
if (num_possible_cpus() > 1)
chan = nth_chan(cap, n++);
else
chan = nth_chan(cap, -1);
Why does num_possible_cpus() == 1 have to be a special case?
