OK.

In upstream we have one user of the udma-glue layer:
drivers/net/ethernet/ti/am65-cpsw-nuss.c

It is allocating memory to be used with DMA (descriptor pool), it needs
to use correct device for DMA API.
The cpsw atm using it's own dev for allocation, which is wrong, but it
worked fine as am654/j721e/j7200 is all coherent.

The glue layer does not use DMAengine API to request a channel as it
require special resource setup compared to what is possible via generic
API. We have kept the DMAengine and Glue layer as separate until I have
time to extend the core to support the features we would need to remove
the Glue layer.
