Hmmm, I'm not sure.  Is there anything else (besides your driver) that 
parses this device tree node?

dma.txt says this:

	"The specific strings that can be used are defined in the binding of 
the DMA client device."

So this looks like it's driver-specific, but it is a required property.
I guess you should keep it, but I think you should get a second opinion.
