But that "shortcoming" of having more requests than channels is not
something specific to the pl330, instead most dma controllers have that
"problem", which seems to get solved by the virt-dma mechanism of
dmaengine - which pl330 doesn't use so far. (but see pl080 for example)

The devicetree only describes the hardware and is never meant as a
configuration space for kernel-code shortcomings.
