SubjectRe: [PATCH v2 1/2] dmaengine: pl330: fix descriptor allocation fail
From
Date
Hello Vinod!

It looks like the patch did not get enough attention. If no one except me will test the patch,
how do we proceed? This patch does not depend on the SOC implementation and the
runtime environment. For me the patch looks fine and will not do harm if it will be committed.

Regards,
Alexander.
