    Ok, but it looks like they do not have a build dependency on dma bits
    so they could be merged separately i.e. on top of the async_tx branch.

    something outside of drivers/dma? Forgive me for missing recent
    conversations if this has been discussed to death already.

    I can go ahead and queue up the dma bits unless you would prefer, and
    Andrew agrees, to take this all through the -mm tree?
