Kernel on zynq runs in secure world. All the sw on zynq from beginning runs in secure world.
I haven't had any time to look at switching kernel to NS.
That's why having dmac in this dts as default configuration in secure world
is fine.

It is not about how driver will handle - driver shouldn't care.
It is how users will handle that kernel runs in non secure
and how to change DTS to reflect this.
Bootloader can do this change for example. Or if there is an option
to detect at run time by kernel that we are in NS than kernel itself can
patch dmac node and use different address.
Definitely bootloader or setup correct address by user is preferred way.

Thanks,
Michal
