Right, I forgot about this.

Well, maybe automatic assignment should be done only when there is only
one reserved region set? In case more than one region assigned to a device,
the driver has to create virtual child devices and configure DMA for them
to be able to let dma-mapping API to use those reserved regions. It looks
that the call to of_dma_configure(dev, np) can be moved back to the driver
(it was not possible at the time that code was merged due to missing
export symbols).

Configuring more than one reserved memory region for given device might
then moved to some helper function to have a common code for that across
the drivers.
