The vtable for DMA driver doesn't have startup/shutdown entry points.
It takes a more complicated change to fix this,

The intention was to mechanically split the driver into two files in
order to remove the noise of the reorg from the subsequent patch
series.  These patches don't fix anything, they just break the driver
in two. I need the exports in order to keep it building so that it
will be bisectable.

These entry points get fixed in later patches.
