do you mean you have cases where you are doing a "memcpy" from one
interleaved memory to another?
Can you provide me with a scenario where this maybe helpful?

The reason why the API was designed like this was to give ability to
take these kind of interleaved memory and copy them to peripheral
(constant addr) or memory (typically contagious).

In case it is just a pattern I wonder why it cannot be described in
standard scatter gather definitions as you can split the block further
down to copy from one respective block to somewhere else in memory.

1. what does this parameter do?
2. is this parameter static for a channel or it changes per transfer?
