This is not possible.
The first call to pxa_request_dma() sets dma_channels[i].name to a non-NULL
value.
The second call to pxa_request_dma() cannot take the same i as
!dma_channels[i].name is not fullfilled.

Even if I have no strong opinion about it, I'll let the patch as it is, unless
you really want me to add the reserved parameter, in which case I'll release a
v3.

Cheers.
