I'm confused. Doesn't Bay Trail use ACPI to do the DMA
engine configuration? That should set find the right device/chan_id/slave_id
combination without any interaction, through the use of dma_request_slave_channel.

On a related note, there seems to be a bug in this driver, which
attempts to set the slave_id through dmaengine_slave_config(), which
is wrong in both cases, ACPI and filter functions.
