Hi,

I'm writing a driver for the SPI controller in the DragonBall m68k based SoCs.
Currently the kernel fails to link because of undefined symbols in
spi.c because the platform doesn't have DMA and therefor doesn't
provide some DMA related symbols.

I have attached below my workaround for this that seems to work enough
for my driver to get probed. Is this change acceptable? I'm not sure
if my driver for the SPI controller will end up in the mainline kernel
as the only user for it is me but it seems like some of my fixes for
these chips will get merged so the probability is a little higher than
zero.
