Yes, this is a bug fix. All the NTB API users shouldn't know what hardware type
is hidden behind it, so the code would be portable for all NTB devices. In this
case NTB device should have dma_masks being properly initialized. Since we pass
DMA addresses to the PCI device then in hardware drivers, it's justified to
copy the masks to NTB device, so the client drivers could allocate the proper
memory addresses.
It can't be broken out, since dma_alloc_coherent() is called in ntb_perf
driver with NTB device passed now. We discovered the problem when the series was
tested on the Intel platform. The same is with ntb_tool driver.
