I am sorry I did not make things clear here. What I mean is not only
link list mode(prep_cyclic), but also other modes (prep_slave,
prep_interleaved ...), users still need to configure the fragment
length, block length or transaction length according to their
requirements.

Fine. We configure the Interrupt type through the flags passed.
