SubjectRe: [PATCH 1/3] DMAENGINE: generic slave channel control
From
Hi Dan,

any thoughts on this? Personally I really like this abstraction from
my experience with embedded DMA controllers, but I don't have your
wide experience of DMA hardware.

Yours,
Linus Walleij

2010/6/29 Linus Walleij <linus.walleij@stericsson.com>:
> This adds an interface to the DMAengine to make it possible to
> reconfigure a slave channel at runtime. We add a few foreseen
> config parameters to the passed struct, with a void * pointer
> for custom per-device or per-platform runtime slave data.
