At least I was not aware of those helpers. It looks to me that the approach of having a statically allocated buffer is more optimal than having to allocate and map the buffer on each transfer.

I asked for this change and no, it shouldn't be a separate patch as it adds "has_apb_dma = false" property for T186 that older Tegra's have as "true". Without this change T186 uses tegra_i2c_hw_feature of T210, see [0]. Hence this change is absolutely correct and appropriate for this patch.

All the patches are tested on older Tegra's (T20/T30 specifically by me) and we fixed several bugs that were regressing them over the few versions of the patchset. I specifically asked for this change for older Tegra's because the APBDMA driver (T20-T210) is getting registered from the module-init level and hence I2C driver probe is always getting deferred. I'm not sure that it's worth to factor out this hunk into a separate patch as it's directly related to the DMA support addition, maybe worth to mention why this is needed in the commit message.
