Then I guess we're left with adding a "struct device *dma_dev" to struct
dwc3 and trying to figure out if we should use parent or self. Does
anybody see any problems with that?

Note, we would NOT be passing device pointers are platform_data, we
would have dwc3.ko figure out if it should use self or its parent device
for dma.
