I laready gave one re-read the above lines.

Anyway I went ahead and read the usage. You are setting the slave parameters
for this. I can see two ways:
1. Have the quirk to driver and based on quirk reset the slave settings when
they are set by client.
2. Put this in DT and set the dma properties based on these quirks and let
driver and cleint be agnostic to it
