More detailed log:

    platform e66d8000.i2c: Linked as a consumer to e6150000.clock-controller
    platform e66d8000.i2c: Linked as a sync state only consumer to e6055400.gpio

Why is e66d8000.i2c not linked as a consumer to e6700000.dma-controller?

    platform e6700000.dma-controller: Linked as a consumer to
e6150000.clock-controller
    platform e66d8000.i2c: Added to deferred list
    platform e6700000.dma-controller: Added to deferred list

    bus: 'platform': driver_probe_device: matched device
e6700000.dma-controller with driver rcar-dmac
    bus: 'platform': really_probe: probing driver rcar-dmac with
device e6700000.dma-controller
    platform e6700000.dma-controller: Driver rcar-dmac requests probe deferral

    bus: 'platform': driver_probe_device: matched device e66d8000.i2c
with driver i2c-rcar
    bus: 'platform': really_probe: probing driver i2c-rcar with device
e66d8000.i2c

I2C becomes available...

    i2c-rcar e66d8000.i2c: request_channel failed for tx (-517)
    [...]

but DMA is not available yet, so the driver falls back to PIO.

    driver: 'i2c-rcar': driver_bound: bound to device 'e66d8000.i2c'
    bus: 'platform': really_probe: bound device e66d8000.i2c to driver i2c-rcar

    platform e6700000.dma-controller: Retrying from deferred list
    bus: 'platform': driver_probe_device: matched device
e6700000.dma-controller with driver rcar-dmac
    bus: 'platform': really_probe: probing driver rcar-dmac with
device e6700000.dma-controller
    platform e6700000.dma-controller: Driver rcar-dmac requests probe deferral
    platform e6700000.dma-controller: Added to deferred list
    platform e6700000.dma-controller: Retrying from deferred list
    bus: 'platform': driver_probe_device: matched device
e6700000.dma-controller with driver rcar-dmac
    bus: 'platform': really_probe: probing driver rcar-dmac with
device e6700000.dma-controller
    driver: 'rcar-dmac': driver_bound: bound to device 'e6700000.dma-controller'
    bus: 'platform': really_probe: bound device
e6700000.dma-controller to driver rcar-dmac

DMA becomes available.

Here userspace is entered. /sys/kernel/debug/dmaengine/summary shows
that the I2C controllers do not have DMA channels allocated, as the
kernel has performed no more I2C transfers after DMA became available.

Using i2cdetect shows that DMA is used, which is good:

    i2c-rcar e66d8000.i2c: got DMA channel for rx

With permissive devlinks, the clock controller consumers are not added
to the deferred probing list, and probe order is slightly different.
The I2C controllers are still probed before the DMA controllers.
But DMA becomes available a bit earlier, before the probing of the last
I2C slave driver.  Hence /sys/kernel/debug/dmaengine/summary shows that
some I2C transfers did use DMA.

So the real issue is that e66d8000.i2c not linked as a consumer to
e6700000.dma-controller.

Gr{oetje,eeting}s,
