This doesn't make sense.  "they" is confusing - why would a driver set
a DMA mask larger than the driver supports?  Or is "they" not
referring to the drivers (in which case, what is it referring to?)

The point of this check is to trap the case where we have, for example,
8GB of memory, but dma_addr_t is 32-bit.  We can allocate in the high
4GB, but we can't represent the address in a dma_addr_t.
