arch_dma_set_uncached works as well in this case. However, mips,
niops2 & xtensa uses a
fixed (via config) value for the offset. Similar approach can't be
used here because the platform specific
offset value has to be determined at runtime so that a single kernel
image can boot on all platforms.
That's why we need the following additional changes for RISC-V to make it work.

1. a new DT property so that arch specific code is aware of the
non-cacheable window offset.
    - either under /chosen node or a completely separate node with
multiple non-cacheable window support
   We also need to define how it is going to referenced from
individual device if a per-device non-cacheable
   window support is required in future. As of now, the beagleV memory
region lies in 0x10_0000_00000 - x17_FFFF_FFFF
   which is mapped to start of DRAM 0x80000000. All of the
non-coherent devices can do 32bit DMA only.

2. Use the dma-ranges and modify the arch_dma_set_uncached function to
pass the struct device as an argument.

Either way, we will need arch specific hook ups and additional changes
while the global non-coherent pool
provides a more elegant solution without any additional arch specific code.

If arch_dma_set_uncached is still preferred way to solve this problem,
I can revise the patch with either approach 1 or approach 2

struct device is only accessible in rmem_dma_device_init. I couldn't
find a proper way to access it during
dma_reserved_default_memory setup under global pool.

Does that mean we should use a per-device memory pool instead of a
global non-coherent pool ?
