So far we never had any device registered for the SoC. This resulted in
some small issues that we kept ignoring like:
1) Not working GPIOLIB_IRQCHIP (gpiochip_irqchip_add_key() failing)
2) Lack of proper tree in the /sys/devices/
3) mips_dma_alloc_coherent() silently handling empty coherent_dma_mask

Kernel 4.19 came with a lot of DMA changes and caused a regression on
bcm47xx. Starting with the commit f8c55dc6e828 ("MIPS: use generic dma
noncoherent ops for simple noncoherent platforms") DMA coherent
allocations just fail. Example:
[    1.114914] bgmac_bcma bcma0:2: Allocation of TX ring 0x200 failed
[    1.121215] bgmac_bcma bcma0:2: Unable to alloc memory for DMA
[    1.127626] bgmac_bcma: probe of bcma0:2 failed with error -12
[    1.133838] bgmac_bcma: Broadcom 47xx GBit MAC driver loaded

The bgmac driver also triggers a WARNING:

This patch setups a "struct device" (and passes it to the bcma) which
allows fixing all the mentioned problems. It'll also require a tiny bcma
patch which will follow through the wireless tree & its maintainer.

I assume that the old ssb based devices also have such problems did
you had a look into those?

I've ordered some device with ssb based SoC & I'm planning to test it
next week hopefully.
