DMA API doesn't fully abstract the dependencies between drivers, hence I disagree.

In my opinion it is much better to avoid I2C driver probe failing with -EPROBE_DEFER if we could. It's just one line in code and one in Kconfig.. really.

Good point about handling -ENODEV of dma_request_slave_channel_reason(), +1 for it.
