Basically I agree not to expose dma's quirk to slave controllers...But, 
the fact I mentioned on cover letter explain the reasons why I have to 
let slave controllers know that they are working with a broken dma. It's 
a dilemma that if we don't want that to be exposed(let slave 
controllers' driver get the info via a API), we have to add broken quirk 
for all of them ,here and there, which seems to be a disaster:(

I would appreciate it if you could give me some suggestions at your 
earliest convenience. :)
