Because it is already on the allocated list (see vchan_tx_prep()).

Ah yes, very good point, doxygen like documentation, got it.

Yes, there is a corner case : a driver does a dmaengine_terminate_all(), to stop
the dma transfers (a missed video frame for example). Then upon the sync signal,
it resubmits the reusable transfers it had.

Or said differently, reusable transfers should continue to be reusable through a
dmaengine_terminate_all(), hence this test. And there is a link with your
comment below.

Because if we don't clear reuse flag, vchan_dma_desc_free_list() won't really
free the descriptor, but move it to allocated list.

Cheers.
