[Meego-kernel] [PATCH 2/5] used id_table method to register for multiple modems instead of multiple calls to spi_register_driver

If I understand correctly you're suggesting that the FW provide a "use_dma" indication to the protocol driver that it uses to determine (instead of the modem type) whether it need to allocate DMA-able buffers or not.
I can certainly suggest that to the FW team but I have no guarantee they'll do it in any timely fashion. I'll comment a FIXME for now if that's sufficient.
