DMA_BIT_MASK(32) rather than a hex constant would be a better choice.

Note that "works" and "is correct" are two different things. That should be
a mask that tells how many bits of the value are actually used by the hardware.
On most 32-bit systems, 32 will be correct, but there's other values in use
(on S/390, it's either 31 or 64 bits, the PowerPC can have 44, and the old PNP
stuff on x86 weirds out at the 24-bit line).
