Correct me if my below understanding is wrong please.

For three chipidea users:
user_a: don't need dma mask
user_b: dma mask value is dma_mask_b
user_c: dma mask value is dma_mask_c

We don't need to call dma_coerce_mask_and_coherent() at generic chipidea
glue driver, and set dma-ranges as dma_mask_b at user_b's dts, and set
dma-ranges as dma_mask_c at user_c's dts.
