Good point! I totally forgot about it.

The only difference between tasklet and threaded ISR should be that
hardware interrupt is masked during of the threaded ISR execution, but
at quick glance it shouldn't be a problem.

BTW, I'm now thinking that the current code is wrong by accumulating
callbacks count in ISR if callback's execution takes too much time, not
sure that it's something what DMA clients expect to happen, will try to
verify that.

It also will be nice to get rid of the free list since it only
complicates code without any real benefits, I actually checked that
kmalloc doesn't introduce any noticeable latency at all.

I'll probably defer the above changes for now, leaving them for 5.7,
otherwise it could be a bit too many changes for this patchset
(hopefully it will get into 5.6).

Yes, it should prevent further interrupts because it stops hardware and
clears interrupt status, thus in a worst case ISR could emit "Interrupt
already served status" message.
