Okay. Let me check with our ASIC engineer to see if there's a way to get
the driver extended to support the case when data size is larger than
the FIFO size. From my understanding based on the data sheet I have, I
don't think that can be done with this controller. But if the ASIC
engineers tells me the opposite, I'll add it as a separate patch later.

Thanks,
