This would be a decent stuff.

My understanding is that even the platform bus uses the of_dma_configure
and probably acpi_dma_configure too. So platform bus may also need the
callback implemented. Please correct me if my understanding is wrong.

I will submit the patch with 'dma_configure' callback implemented for
the busses shortly.

Totally agree with this.
