I believe I'm calculating the state for the descriptor being processed
only in the case where the cookie being asked about is for the
descriptor being processed.  I'm confused what your objection is, so I'm
going to annotate what I think is going on in the function so maybe you
can point to where I've got something wrong.

	spin_lock_irqsave(&c->vc.lock, flags);
	vd = vchan_find_desc(&c->vc, cookie);
	if (vd) {
		txstate->residue =

I believe this is the case for "the descriptor for the cookie being
asked about hasn't been pulled off the list and submitted to the
hardware yet"

	} else if (c->desc && c->desc->vd.tx.cookie == cookie) {
		struct bcm2835_desc *d = c->desc;
		dma_addr_t pos;

		if (d->dir == DMA_MEM_TO_DEV)
			pos = readl(c->chan_base + BCM2835_DMA_SOURCE_AD);
		else if (d->dir == DMA_DEV_TO_MEM)
			pos = readl(c->chan_base + BCM2835_DMA_DEST_AD);
			pos = 0;

		txstate->residue = bcm2835_dma_desc_size_pos(d, pos);

Here the descriptor for the cookie is currently being processed by the
hardware.  It might also be done but hasn't had its done interrupt
handled yet, so this is the case where I want to effectively do the done
IRQ's work of updating the status.

	} else {
		txstate->residue = 0;

Here, it's not in the hardware and it's not queued to be submitted to
the hardware, so it must be done.


What am I missing?
