Subject: lan743x driver fails to map DMA during initialization on Raspberry CM4IO

To whom it may concern,

I encountered this error when trying to get an EVB-LAN7430 evaluation
board to work with the PCIe interface on a Raspberry CM4IO board.
There was already someone on the raspberrypi/linux github who
encountered the same problem and also provided a possible fix here:

Please refer to the github link for a detailed error description.

The fix was tested successfully by some people who commented on the
github issue and by myself.
It seems the issue occurred on both 32 and 64 Bit builds on this system.
If I understand it correctly, this might not a universal fix.
