Are we really going to add a set of hooks for each DMA engine whizbang
feature?

That will get ugly when DMA engines support memcpy, xor, crc32, sha1,
aes, and a dozen other transforms.

Please use the more readable style that explicitly lists bits:

DMA_MEMCPY = (1 << 0),
DMA_XOR = (1 << 1),
...

Clearly, each operation needs to be more compartmentalized.

This just isn't scalable, when you consider all the possible transforms.
