So 257002094bc5935dd63207a380d9698ab81f0775 above is the fixed version
for the commit - this switched the ifdef in dma.c around that I had
inverted.  Can you try that one instead?  And then move on with the
commits after it in the updated powerpc-dma.6 branch - they are
identical to the original branch except for carrying this fix forward.
