Subject: p54usb: Don't run DMA off code segment

Passing a pointer into the code segment to DMA API is invalid. Most of the
time, you just DMA garbage into the device, but sometimes the controller
gets a bad address and then you see this:

usbcore: registered new interface driver prism54usb
usb 3-1: new full speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 2
usb 3-1: not running at top speed; connect to a high speed hub
usb 3-1: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
uhci_hcd 0000:00:1d.2: host system error, PCI problems?
uhci_hcd 0000:00:1d.2: host controller halted, very bad!
uhci_hcd 0000:00:1d.2: HC died; cleaning up
p54usb: reset failed!
prism54usb: probe of 3-1:1.0 failed with error -110
