If some changes are made in interleave API then it can support our BOX
mode. Here in interleaved template he is assuming destination pattern as
can be contiguous or same as source pattern, but in our case destination
pattern is different from source pattern.
So if a new parameter destination data chunk is added in "struct
dma_interleaved_template" structure then it can support different
destination pattern.
Also it will good if you can provide another parameter for passing
private data to dma driver.

Please can you review my other patches also where we replied to some of
your questions about passing private data for SG mode.

Thanks
