After some powering issues, I could boot my PXA3xx board (CM-X300 from
Compulab) and I've tested this patchset on it. In other words: no
regression on PXA! both DMA and non-DMA works.

Daniel: feel free to confirm my check, but it's no longer required,
in case you are too busy at the moment. I'll be able to test your
dmaengine work on this board, so feel free to Cc me on it.

Big thanks to Compulab for sending me the board, and specially
to Igor and Nikita!
