The name you gave here sounds like this is defining total number of
linked PaRAM sets. Rather this is actually tracking the number of PaRAM
sets (slots) in current linked set, correct? Then may be just call it
'nslots' or even 'num_slots'? There are just too many variables with
"total" prefix to keep track of in this function!

We dont need to check for this case for every DMA_COMPLETE interrupt.
May be move the initial setup to another function called from
edma_issue_pending()?

See Documentation/CodingStyle for multi-line commenting style.

There is way too much duplication of code here mainly because you
decided not to loop twice in the course of setting up the two linked
sets. Can you use a loop instead?

If you have more SGs to service at the end of setting up the two linked
sets, you should stop right there and wait for CPU to recycle the linked
sets. Right now you are setup for re-DMAing old data.

You wont hit this issue in testing because you have setup an interrupt
for LS0 and that will most likely service before LS1 completes but we
cannot rely on that timing.

Just link to dummy at end of LS1 to stall the DMA and wait for the
completion handler to come-in and restart the DMA after recycling LS0.

I haven't reviewed rest of the patch. Lets make sure we have a common
understanding here.

Thanks,
Sekhar
