Typically we'd expect you to use the parent device for DMA, as in your
second option.

That said, we're exploring the option of moving the dma_ops to be a
first-class member of 'struct device' instead of hiding it in archdata,
and cleaning up the way that it gets initialised for newly-created
devices. And at that point we might end up letting it get inherited
from the parent so your original code *would* work... but I wouldn't
hold your breath for that.

Definitely *don't* mess around in archdata.
