How is this correct ? We start the trigger but have no buffer to carry
to... what happens with the data ? -> I think we both have an answer to
that, as you state below

Okay, I understand this. at91-sama5d2_adc does not manually
attach/detach the pollfunc. So why do we need to change anything here ?

Allright, what is required to be fixed regarding the order, in this
specific case? We enable the DMA, and then we do the normal 'postenable'
that was called anyway if we did not override the 'postenable' in the
ops. Do you want to move this code to 'preenable' and keep 'postenable'
to the standard subsystem one ?

The same applies to the predisable, we first call the subsystem
'predisable' then do the specific at91 stuff. You want to move this to
the 'postdisable' ?

I think reverting the order inside the functions themselves is not good
as we replace the order of starting trigger/DMA setup.
So, coming to your question below...

... yes, this looks more appropriate, to move things to
'preenable/postdisable', if you feel like 'postenable/predisable' is not
the proper place to put them.
But the order itself, first enable DMA then trigger, and disable in
reverse order, I do not think there is anything wrong with that? Am I
misunderstanding ?

If Jonathan or Ludovic have a different idea, please let me know.

Also, I can test your patch to see if everything is fine.

Thanks,
Eugen
