The major reason why that file is there is that there is *another*
PL080 driver in arch/arm/mach-s3c64xx/dma.c which I repeatedly
asked the Samsung people to replace with the
drivers/dma/amba-pl08x.c driver. :-(

When I worked on the PL08x driver in drivers/dma I reused
this header to avoid code duplication.

Now that thing is stranding in the way. Alim, Kukjin, what's happening?

I feel tempted to update Alim's patch myself and push it on you
soon...

That stuff is in now, looking real good. Good work on this!

Sounds like a plan. If we just get rid of the duplicate implementation
we're going somewhere.
