I was basically asking for this:
arch/arm/boot/dts/sun8i-h3-orangepi-plus2e.dts

Can you explain more how you get the DMA memory offsets in the code
from this node?

You might be able to add status="disabled" to the mbus node and this
would go away as fw_devlink doesn't cause a consumer to wait on a
disabled supplier. See more below -- you have a bunch of options.

Well, fw_devlink=on can't tell if you don't have a driver or if you
are going to load it soon (since you have CONFIG_MODULES enabled). So
if it's a board you are actively bringing up, one of the other options
below might be good to use.

You could use fw_devlink=permissive in the kernel commandline, but it
will disable a bunch of benefits of fw_devlink=on (no pointless
deferred probes, no suspend/resume ordering based on dependencies
listed in DT, etc).

Another option would be to use deferred_probe_timeout=1 in the kernel
commandline, and this will cause this to be unblocked 1 second after
late_initcall() and you'll get the benefit of fw_devlink=on for all
the devices that have a driver registered by then (and some more
devices too -- see commit text of
d46f3e3ed5276e756caf40f760d4902d15c12dcb).
