Hi Hans,

Adding Dan...

Please note that this way you permenently exclude the device from public use.
If that's your intent that's fine.
Remember however that you can leave the device generally non-private
and attempt as needed to allocate a channel for exclusive usage by dma_request_channel()
- it would set DMA_PRIVATE flag if private channel candidate has been found.

With this note:
