Thanks for the update.

I wasn't interested in splitting the patch in two separate chunks,
thinking that shrinking the size of the structure then increasing it of
roughly the same amount was not the best way to sell the changes :)

Unfortunately, as noted by Uwe, you not only split the patch but also
broke it ;)

If we're going to split the patch, it should be split in:
1) replace name[1] by name[] (or name[0]) to remove the implicit padding
from platform_device structure
2) add dma_mask to platform_object structure and use it to initialize

Anyway, as Russel explained in another mail, unconditionally set
dev.dma_mask pointer is probably going to break, so this part (2) need
some rework, I'm gonna try to do.

Thanks for reminding me about this patch.
