    If CONFIG_NET_DMA=y then available channels will be consumed for
    'public' usage. I would turn that option off for AVR32 as it hurts
    performance on dma-incoherent archs like ARM. Async_tx will also
    consume public channels if loaded. 2.6.30 will have the
    CONFIG_ASYNC_TX_DMA option to turn off this allocation... or just set
    DMA_PRIVATE and not worry these :-).
