Hmm, I experience problems with DMA too but on uart3. I'm using the same
workaround for the uart (I've just commented out the dma entries in the DT).
The problem manifests itself here such, that brcm_patchram_plus hangs 
while uploading the firmware to a BCM4330 connected at uart3 (reproducible).

So maybe there is a bug in the DMA-engine which not only effects SPI. Or 
both drivers contain the same error in handling DMA (maybe through c&p).
But that's just specualtion from me, I haven't looked further into that
