As per IP produce guide pg021, once DMACR[RS] is set to 0x0
the halted bit in the DMA Status register should asserts to
0x1 when the DMA engine is halted. Also the DMA may be the
in IDLE state, there may be active data on the AXI interface.

I think for now we can skip this patchset in v2 and repost it
when a proper root cause is done.
