1. Every subsystem has drivers that don't fully conform to a desired
interface. If even a small fraction did this, everyone's logs would
be cluttered with this garbage. For that matter, if just the serial
subsystem alone did this, logs would be awash in warnings.

2. Now _every_ dmaengine driver "fix" for this will need to be pushed
to -stable.
