Do we really need a separate 'bus' for those DMA controllers?

IMHO they are not different from the hw perspective from the other
devices available on the SoC. A separate bus is a historical thing, they
work fine when moved directly under the 'soc' node. The separate bus
only mimics the way Linux organizes its drivers. This comment affects
both ARM and ARM64.
