    Ok. So arm64 will automatically switch over to set_arch_dma_coherent_ops
    (once it's there, it will be called automatically anyway because it's in
    the callchain anyway already).

    For the moment, on our internal PCI trees, we'll add a notifier and wait
    for upstream to get PCI support and figure this out as part of that
    activity. In the case of ACPI, I'm still pushing for _CCA methods to be
    added by default because it makes sense to be verbose in describing
    platform hardware devices, even in spite of default.
