I see. This is indeed a bit tricky, as there is no easy way to know
how the dmaengine is wired up to the slave. A correct solution is
probably to follow the 'dma-ranges' up from the master to the common
parent and then follow the 'ranges' back to the slave, but that
requires coming up with a new exported function.

It's perhaps good enough in the meantime to read out the address from
the slave directly, but you should not assume that the first
cell has the complete information and instead should at least
evaluate #address-cells.
