No, all current mainline drivers using the library use cyclic DMA.

The purpose of this change is to factor code out of individual drivers
into generic code rather than having lots of people writing exactly the
same code. Code duplication at this level is pointless and makes more
work for everyone who will have to maintain the code going forward.

Having looked at Russell's out of tree code I'm even more convinced that
the amount of new code needed for non-cyclic DMA should be pretty
trivial.

Either of these options are fine.

This would be someone else doing one of the above things.
