Do we really need a separate 'bus' for those DMA controllers?

IMHO they are not different from the hw perspective from the other 
devices available on the SoC. A separate bus is a historical thing, they 
work fine when moved directly under the 'soc' node. The separate bus 
only mimics the way Linux organizes its drivers. This comment affects 
both ARM and ARM64.
