you could add:
Fixes: 34df42f59a60 ("serial: at91: add rx dma support")
So that -stable branches get this.

IMHO, we don't really know why dmaengine_prep_dma_cyclic() failed, it
could be because it's already in use, or bad value, or...
(and anyway, we just check if the return value is < 0 in atmel _startup.)
Is there a specific reason you choose -ENOMEM ?
If not, maybe keeping this patch smaller with a simple dev_err()+goto
here would be a better choice.
