sticking into arch/arm/common/ wasn't a nice move. But then again, so
wasn't asking for the patch to be removed :-s

because it doesn't make sense to support multiple DMA APIs. We can check
from MUSB's registers if it was configured with Inventra DMA support and
based on that we can register MUSB's own DMA Engine to dmaengine API.

see above.
