This kind of depends on whether or not the device is behind an IOMMU. If
it is, then the IOMMU DMA MASK would apply, which can be derived from
the number of address bits that the IOMMU can handle. The SMMU supports
32 address bits on Tegra30 and Tegra114, 34 address bits on more recent

I think for now it's safer to leave the DMA mask at the default (32 bit)
to avoid the need to distinguish between IOMMU and non-IOMMU devices.
