I see.

That patch is attempting to solve the same problem using a different 
approach, but I'd prefer to keep using platform_device_register_simple().

I don't mind the effort. I want to avoid all the boilerplate.

That Coldfire patch could be reverted if this is a better solution.

So we're back at the same problem that Geert's suggestion also raised: how 
to identify potentially affected platform devices and drivers?

Maybe we can take a leaf out of Christoph's book, and leave a noisy 
WARNING splat in the log.

void arch_setup_pdev_archdata(struct platform_device *pdev)
{
        WARN_ON_ONCE(pdev->dev.coherent_dma_mask != DMA_MASK_NONE ||
                     pdev->dev.dma_mask != NULL);
        pdev->dev.coherent_dma_mask = DMA_BIT_MASK(32);
        pdev->dev.dma_mask = &pdev->dev.coherent_dma_mask;
}
