of_dma_configure() only gets called for platform bus and it
uses of_dma_is_coherent() which searches device ancestors for
dma-coherent property. But it uses set_arch_dma_coherent_ops()
which is a no-op on arm64 now. Catalin mentions this in another
thread: https://lkml.org/lkml/2014/9/15/363

So maybe we should fix set_arch_dma_coherent_ops() and drop
platform bus from the notifier handler.
