Perhaps,

/* DesignWare DMA supports burst value from 0 */
caps->min_burst = 0;

Shouldn't we do the same for iDMA 32-bit? Thus, perhaps do it in the core.c?

I think we may read directly to the array. This ugly loops were introduced due
to type mismatch. (See below)

And this will be effectively memset32().

I think we have to stop with this kind of types and use directly what is in the
properties, i.e.

u32 max_burst[...];
