Some people wanted the possibility to set the DMA mask as this USB2 CI
driver does not do specific Berlin operation and can be reused later.
I don't particularly need to call dma_coerce_mask_and_coherent() in my
case, as far as I know.

They can maybe give the restrictions they might want to put on the DMA
