[RFC PATCH 0/3] dma-mapping: clear dangling pointers consistently

When working with dma_set_max_seg_size(), I noticed issues with a
dangling dma_parms pointer. I saw Christoph just worked on handling
something similar for the dma_ops pointer, too. I came up with three
patches on top of Christoph's work which I send out for discussion here:

Patch 1 fixes a meanwhile stale comment.

Patch 2 makes clearing the dma_ops pointer more consistent because it
was missed on the custom ARM implementation to the best of my knowledge.

Patch 3 generalizes teardown_dma_ops to teardown_dma, so that clearing
dma_parms can be added there.

All these patches are based on the dma-mapping for-next branch. They are
build tested and runtime tested on a Renesas Salvator-XS board (R-Car
M3-N, ARM64) and Renesas Lager board (R-Car H2, ARM32).

A branch containing these (and dma_parms additions for the above boards)
can be found here:

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/wsa/linux.git renesas/sdhi/set_max_seg

Looking forward to opinions.
