That's right we do have it.

Oh man. That makes pxa2xx_spi dependent on a certain specific DMA engine
driver.

I wonder what's the rationale that passing slave_id with
dma_slave_config is wrong? The current code works fine with that and is
is independent of the DMA engine driver (even though we know that it is
going to be dw-dma).

The dw-dma handles slave_id in its implementation of
dmaengine_slave_config().
