DMA mode on this controller requires that source address, destination
address and reading
length should all be 16-byte aligned. And because of this, I didn't
use the bounce buffer
provided by spi-nor framework and allocate its own one.
Should I just cast all these pointers to ulong or are there better
ways to check for address
alignments and/or obtain an aligned buffer?
