It seems this driver was written based on dw_dmac driver. A while ago
I had some investigation of that driver.

Some of issues reported at that time could be applied on your driver
too. With a quick look, the queue list management issue is a
candidate. Here is an excerpt from the thread:

--- --- ---
3. dwc->queue list management

The function dwc_tx_submit() add the descriptor to dwc->queue list if
active list was not empty. But it does not manage list. And
all descriptors in the queue list will be moved to active list at a
time. So it seems non-first descriptors in queue list will never
processed by the hardware.

The dwc_tx_submit() should rewrite of the last descriptor in
queue list (it it had children, the last children of it) by txd.phys
of newly queued descriptor. Or, only first elements of queue list
should be moved to active list at a time.

Is my analysis correct?

You can use DMA_COMPL_{SRC,DEST}_UNMAP_SINGLE since 2.6.30.
