Which various drivers?

This bit:

/* Copied from i386. Doesn't make much sense, because it will
only work for pci_alloc_coherent.
The caller just has to use GFP_DMA in this case. */
if (mask < DMA_BIT_MASK(24))
return 0;

in x86_dma_supported, or the equivalent bit in dma_direct_supported.
Kept for bug to bug compatibility, but I guess I should reword or
just drop the changelog bit іf it causes confusion.
