Should be good.

There is an alternative here [to this].
Maybe using the IIO Buffer DMA[Engine] integration that Lars wrote [1].
This would avoid calling dmaengine_terminate_sync() and similar hooks in
the AT91 driver. That also preserves the correct order (start DMA first,
then attach pollfunc ; and reverse on disable).
But that is more work; not on the patch itself, but more on the testing.

[1] Upstreaming more parts for the IIO Buffer DMA[Engine] integration is on
my to-do-list as well. I think there are still some patches that we use,
but are not upstreamed yet.

I'll come-up a with a V2 for this with preenable()/postdisable()
alternative here.
