it seems direct DMA_TO_DEVICE/DMA_FROM_DEVICE is more feasible and
explict to me. "dmaxfer_template.src_inc &&
!dmaxfer_template.dst_inc" is probably DMA_TO_DEVICE, but it is not
always true for all scenerios to all kinds of devices. anyway, for my
case, they are always true. so i can use them.

i agree that can decrease the calling of config. let the genxfer
decide the address of every transfer should be more flexible.

ok, that is going to make the api better.
