Subject: Re: [PATCH 07/13] dmaengine: introduce dma_request_channel and
 private channels

Hi Dan,

I think, there is a problem with your dma_request_channel() / 
private_candidate() implementation: your current version only tries one 
channel from a dma device list, which matched capabilities. If this 
channel is not accepted by the client, you do not try other channels from 
this device and just go to the next one...

Another problem I encountered with my framebuffer is the initialisation 
order. You initialise dmaengine per subsys_initcall(), whereas the only 
way to guarantee the order:

dmaengine
dma-device driver
framebuffer

when they are all linked into the kernel was to switch dmaengine to 
arch_initcall, put the dma driver under subsys_initcall, and the 
framebuffer under a normal module_init / device_initcall.

Below is a naive patch, adding two more arguments to private_candidate() 
is not very elegant, so, this is not an official submission. Feel free to 
propose a better fix. But if you like, I can make two patches out of this 
- separating the initialisation priority.

Thanks
Guennadi
