This is for the 'coherent' allocations, and literatelly nothing changes
for those yet.

But for the mapping path this switches m68k to use the dma-direct
path, wrapped by dma-noncoherent. And these do check dev->dma_mask,
although only really for sanity checking.

Btw, can I get a review and testing for the above? They aren't really
experimental any more, and I'd like to move architectures over as soon
as possible.
