Yes. That cleans up a little bit the sw architecture. But still this custom API
allowed both DMAMUX and DMA at the same time since using the same channel ID
allocator.
Ok this is another story to be addressed out of this thread ;)

Yep good catch : That's correct. Even if probability to happen is rather low, it
may happen.
Will solve that.
