good point, do you wanna send some patches ?

I guess to make the MUSB side simpler we would need musb-dma-engine glue
to map dmaengine to the private MUSB API. Then we would have some
starting point to also move inventra (and anybody else) to dmaengine

Once that's done, we drop MUSB's private API.
