Hi all!

Benjamin Herrenschmidt pointed a few issues in the proposed design of
device tree bindings for contiguous memory allocator and reserved memory

Some time has passed, but there is still no consensus on the bindings
for the reserved memory and various drawback of this solution has been
shown, so in my opinion the best I can do now is to revert them
completely and start from scratch again later.

This patch series reverts patches related to device tree bindings
proposed in the following thread:
and merged by commit 64c353864e3f7ccba0ade1bd6f562f9a3bc7e68d ("Merge
branch 'for-v3.12' of git://git.linaro.org/people/mszyprowski/linux-dma-mapping").
