I have few comments I posted. Besides that don't forget about current
users of the DT properties you standardized (by naming). Better you
convert them at the same time. Older DT (blobs) are being still

Otherwise looks okay after you address all my comments and maybe others
will do some. The DT people ACK is a must before this goes somewhere.

Also, please keep Cc list as small as possible. For example I'm not sure
Viresh has time to look at them, but he might keep an eye on the
dmaengine mailing list. Same about Dan.
