The issues raised by Sekhar and Santosh were reasonably minor and will
be addressed. My major concern is that the dependency on some api to
fetch dmaengine driver SG limitations is not resolved. That's being
discussed in https://lkml.org/lkml/2013/1/10/432

If I don't get confirmation from Vinod soon, I'll just take a stab at
implementing the callbacks he mentioned in that thread. Static
per-channel caps don't provide the information needed by a client driver
the uses the EDMA DMAC.

Alternatively, we can go back to the hack that looks at the edma
phandle and hardcodes the mmc SG limits to magic values, but that's just
plain ugly. I could live with it temporarily if we can't get the
dmaengine api resolved until 3.10...dunno if others can though. ;)
