I looked at the code once more and ste_dam40 should be on this list :)
ste_dm40 only treats issue_pending accordingly if the DMA driver is in
idle. If the dma is active the desc:s submitted from submit() will be
started later on from dma-irq-function. The dma-irq-function simply
checks if there are pending desc are start them if any. I will fix a
patch for this.
