This fix looks wrong.  the request_dma code is confined within an #ifdef
CONFIG_ISA section but the advansys doesn't actually require an ISA DMA
channel to function, so you're saying there are systems with ISA but
without request_dma()?

If so I think we leave the depends alone and try to bring the board up
in NO_ISA_DMA mode.  That means the narrowboard check should be gated by
CONFIG_ISA_DMA_API ... do we also have to gate free_dma as well?
