Yes, I know that they are different.

asm/dma-mapping.h only includes asm/memory.h. We are getting lucky that
linux/dma-mapping.h is picking up ARCH_HAS_DMA_SET_COHERENT_MASK because
the include path looks like this for ixp4xx and pxa: linux/dma-mapping.h
-> linux/scatterlist.h -> asm/io.h -> mach/io.h -> mach/hardware.h.

I was previously thinking the define was getting picked up thru
asm/pci.h somehow. So I can just drop this from my series. It does need
to get fixed though or other header re-working could silently break this.
