Actually, we already have the same case elsewhere with
'brcm,dma-channel-mask'. Maybe there are others. So make the property
common (i.e. documented in dma.txt) and called 'dma-channel-mask'.

Whether or not the dmaengine handles this or not is irrelevant to
whether the binding is common or not. I have no say over OS design
decisions.
