Initially, when I implemented the DMA part for this driver, this was the
idea. However the DMA engine was not used at that time by anyone , and I
could not make it work properly. Jonathan advised at that moment to use
this current framework.

Ok, I will test it .

What I do not understand completely is why it bothers you to have at91
specific code in postenable / predisable.
The same thing will happen will happen with preenable/postdisable:
specific at91 code will be called after subsystem preenable and before
subsystem postdisable.
