Please see __uniphier_mdmac_handle().


It gets the address and size by sg_dma_address(), sg_dma_len()
just before setting them to the hardware registers.


       sg = &md->sgl[md->sg_cur];

       if (md->dir == DMA_MEM_TO_DEV) {
               src_mode = UNIPHIER_MDMAC_CH_MODE__ADDR_INC;
               src_addr = sg_dma_address(sg);
               dest_mode = UNIPHIER_MDMAC_CH_MODE__ADDR_FIXED;
               dest_addr = 0;
       } else {
               src_mode = UNIPHIER_MDMAC_CH_MODE__ADDR_FIXED;
               src_addr = 0;
               dest_mode = UNIPHIER_MDMAC_CH_MODE__ADDR_INC;
               dest_addr = sg_dma_address(sg);
       }

None of them is configurable.
