Yes, the PCI version should end up looking a lot like the old 
pci_dma_configure() used to, before everything got pulled together.

Indeed, platform and AMBA will want an implementation to dispatch 
between {of,acpi}_dma_configre() per the current logic. Host1x doesn't 
seem to care about ACPI so probably wants its own just calling

having something to review instead would certainly be easier :)
