Hi Eddie,

I'm missing the bigger picture in the description here, how does this fit into
the PCIe endpoint framework and the dmaengine subsystem?

Does the AST2500 show up as a PCIe device in the host, or do you just
inject DMAs into the host and hope that bypasses the IOMMU?
If it shows up as an endpoint, how does the endpoint driver link into the
dma driver?
