It is not really static, the size in bytes depends on the dev_width and
the maxburst:
dev_width * burst * (SZ_64K - 1);

The number of (dev_width * burst) is static, yes. Other DMA engines
might have similar interpretation, but returning the maximum length in
bytes sounded more generic for other engines to be able to adopt.

Initially I had maxburst_cnt in struct dma_device for maximum burst
count within one SG, but it felt clumsy and not too intuitive either.
