I think that the above should be a dev_dbg print or re-worked in someway
because now for Tegra194 which does not have an APB DMA I see ...

[       6.093234] ERR KERN tegra-i2c 31c0000.i2c: cannot use DMA: -19
[       6.096847] ERR KERN tegra-i2c 31c0000.i2c: falling back to PIO

Given that the APB DMA is not supported for Tegra186/Tegra194, there is
no point in printing these error messages. Now it looks like something
is wrong but really it is not :-(

Cheers
Jon
