Oh bum, I hadn't even realised usb_bus_type could be modular.

Would it be sufficient to look for dev->of_node_reused, or is it also
possible for USB devices to have OF nodes of their own such that
of_dma_configure() would still blat the mask with a 32-bit default?
(Although that would still un-break Rpi3, even if strictly wrong)
