Actually I have thought over your point, and you're quite right (this is your
case of more than 40 lines).

The exception I have found is :
- a device driver is wrongly written
- it requests the requestor line 0x1000 (below 0x8000)
- pxa_dma computes the register in pxad_drcmr(0x1000)
=> this gives : base + 0x1000 + 4 * 0x1000 = base + 0x5000
=> this is a not existing iomapped register

So yes, I will respin the patchset, with :
- one patch adding the number of requestors in mmp_dma.h
- one patch adding the number of requestors in devicetree description
- one patch adding the number of requestors in arch/arm/mach-pxa (my tree)
- one patch adding the use of number of requestors in pxa_dma.c
