[PATCH 0/2] Free running cyclic transfer implementation for pl330

Just to let you know, that I got following test report from Stephen (thanks a lot!).

The patch won’t work due to full cyclic transfer doesn’t fit into mcbufsz (256 bytes long).
His application requested driver to do cyclic transfer with large number of cycles.
pl330 microcode has restriction on how far PC can change and this limit is 256 bytes,
so increasing mcbufsz will not solve problem. Don’t want to make jump bridges or
something like on the fly CPU modified microcode.

I don’t have idea why this might happen on Odroid and due to the fact the patch don’t
work for Stephen and I don’t have another idea how to implement that, it is better to
leave the problem along.

Krzysztof, thanks a lot for help. Really.
