The issue is caused by the lack of iommu_map_sgtable() stub when no
IOMMU support is configured. I've posted a patch for this:

https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/20200630081756.18526-1-m.szyprowski@samsung.com/

The patch for this driver is fine, we have to wait until the above fix
gets merged and then it can be applied during the next release cycle.
