Ok, thanks. I will follow up with a patch in my next submissions that builds it.

Perhaps a:
default y if 'ARCH_OMAP2PLUS'

and leave the existing as it is...
default n if  'ARCH_DAVINCI || ARCH_OMAP1 || ARCH_OMAP2'

would make most sense to me. Basically EDMA is seen on current and all

MMC depends on EDMA specially on AM33xx there's no PIO mode AFAIK. The
'm' option will require some initramfs to load the module when needing
to MMC boot, I suggest lets leave it as y.
