Well, the driver doesn't use the exact value. Would that be 128, 1000 or 10000,
it wouldn't change its behavior. The clients either pass -1UL (ie. no flow
control) or a requestor line number.

It can if you wish, but in this case I must amend the platform data case too, ie
mmp_dma_platdata. And this has an impact on MMP architecture. I'd rather have
the simpler approach unless you really want the exact number of requestor lines
to be passed in platform_data+DT.
