Yes, this is necessary.

Yes, current code can work, but the problem is that the DMA clients
must add one property (something like "sprd,slave-id") to specify the
slave id. So considering this, we want to change the dma-cells to 2,
including dma channel and dma slave id, which can avoid introducing
some similar properties for DMA clients.

Now there are no DMA clients in mainline for Spreadtrum platform, and
we want to upstream our first DMA clients: SPI controller. So no other
drivers need to change when we changing dma cells. Thanks.
