Ah, I was under the assumption that there was already a callback
for this. We have a dma_set_coherent_mask() implementation in
some pci hosts (ixp4xx and it8152), but that's not a proper
callback that can be override per host and it does not
actually do what we were talking about here. I guess the callback
should live in struct hw_pci in case of ARM, and set a new field
in struct device_dma_parameters.

Maybe we don't even need a new flag if we just set
device->coherent_dma_mask to zero.
