I'm trying to cleanup/fix the sdhost driver for upstream merge (I
suspect I will not find time to seriously work on in before january,
pre-xmas time is pretty packed), so I tried to enable dma (wifi-testing
branch) for that one, so make sure I don't break dma, only to find that
dma doesn't work even without my cleanup patches.  So, debugging why dma
doesn't work is #1 on my sdhost todo list ...

Didn't try yet to enable dma for sdhci.  Feel free to go ahead ;)
It's dma channel 11 according to the docs (p62):
