This patch has already been rejected by Maxime in the threads
	http://www.spinics.net/lists/dmaengine/msg08610.html
and
	http://www.spinics.net/lists/dmaengine/msg08719.html

I hope you will find the way he wants for this maxburst to be added.

I was about to reply to Mylene's e-mail, suggesting that she should add
a comment in the code (and maybe in the commit log) to explain why this
addition is needed, and also that even though the schematics say that
value "1" (max burst size of 4 bytes) is reserved, it is in fact
incorrect. The Allwinner BSP code is really using this value, and it's
the value that makes audio work, so we believe the datasheet is simply
incorrect.

We already discussed it with Maxime, so I believe he should agree this
time. But I would suggest to have such details explained in the commit
log and in a comment in the code.

Best regards,

Thomas

Strange. Looking at the datasheets of the A23, A31, A33, A83T and H3
(these are the SoCs using the DMA sun6i), only the H3 can have 4 as the
burst size (the doc is unclear for the A31).

Well, I was submitting for the H3, Mylène is submitting for the A33.
So, what about the A23, A31 and A83T?

Since these are device properties, I feel we should move this to DT. That
way any new controller can have any variation based on the mood of hw
designer that day and we can hopefully cope with it :-)

But yes we would need to set the bursts supported in driver and allow above
for supported bursts only.
