Yes, it should, but just like OMAP, there's a conversion effort that needs
to be gone through. It has one point - and only one point - which allows
its continued existence under arch/arm, and that is it already exists

If it was new code, the answer would be a definite NACK, but it isn't.
It's pre-existing code which is already in mainline. It's merely being

Another plus point for it is that there does seem to be a DMA engine
driver for it, so hopefully we'll see it killed off in arch/arm soon.
