Thanks for your attention.
This few days I look up the code for the realization of dma_release_channel().
I found that it will disable the dma request first. So it's may safe.
And drivers hadn't check whether dma is still active before dma_release_channel() as a usually usage.
Because it will be disabled automatic.

The only problem is that, it will be forced to cancel the transfer which was not yet completed.
Looking forward to hearing from you.

Best regards,
Yuan Yao
