The patch looks good to me. I made some modifications to commit message
- mostly for brevity.

    ARM: edma: dt: create unused channel list

    HWMOD removal for MMC is breaking edma_start() as the events
    are being manually triggered due to EDMA unused channel list
    not being ready.

    The above issue is fixed by reading the "dmas" property from
    the DT node if it exists and then clearing the bits in the
    unused channel list if the dma controller used by any device
    is EDMA.

    This is similar to approach taken in non-DT case.

    Also introduced is a minor clean up of a checkpatch error in
    old code.

Thanks,
Sekhar
