The problem is the bodge in pci_dma_configure() where we don't have an
OF node for the actual device itself, so pass in the host bridge's OF
node instead. This happens to work well enough for dma-coherent, but I
don't think dma-ranges was even considered at the time.

As it happens I'm currently halfway through writing an experiment
wherein pci_dma_configure() creates a temporary child node for the
of_dma_configure() call if no other suitable alternative (e.g. some
intermediate bridge node) exists. How hard are you likely to NAK that
approach? ;)

Indeed, this patch as-is will break currently correct DTs (because we
won't find dma-ranges on the device, so will bail before even looking at
the parent as we should).
