Subject[RFC PATCH 13/13] Documentation: add schedule for removing private EDMA API
The davinci-pcm driver is the last in-kernel user of the private
EDMA API. Once it has been converted to DMA Engine API the
private EDMA API functionality can be folded into the EDMA DMA
Engine driver and removed.

+What: EDMA private DMA implementation
+When: 2013
+Why: We have a DMA engine implementation; all users should be updated
+ to use this rather than persisting with the old APIs. The old APIs
+ block merging the old DMA engine implementation into the DMA
+ engine driver.
