Yes, there's still a big split. The code under arch/arm/common/ provides still
the 'legacy' edma API. This is still used by audio
sound/soc/davinci/davinci-pcm for older daVinci devices (AM335x. AM43xx uses
the edma-pcm).

And it is not that simple to deprecate davinci-pcm: it can use so called
ping-pong mode for audio data transfer. This mode is not possible via
dmaengine AFAIK.
I'm going to check if edma-pcm would work fine instead of the ping-pong mode.
If it does I can remove davinci-pcm and we can start cleaning up the edma code.
