That is an incorrect assumption.

The current DMA position is defined by the DMA pointer. When the DMA
engine has transferred the last few bytes of the DMA, the DMA pointer
will be pointing to the byte _after_ the last byte transferred in the
buffer.

Therefore, when you calculate the residue as (buf_start + buf_len -
current_pointer) you end up with zero.

What we need to do is to get rid of this idea that reporting the residue
is optional for DMA engine drivers. Let's make it absolutely required
in order to support cyclic transfers.
