Yes, this is really funny and only shows the brokenness of current channel
filtering mechanism used in DMA engine subsystem. Fortunately this is
quite irrelevant to multiplatform kernels, because no users of it will be
compiled in, since it's used only for legacy (non-DT) channel filtering.

Anyway, I would happily redesign and rewrite the DMA engine channel
matching completely to make it much more sane, but I guess I would need an
ack from Vinod and Dan to do it.

Best regards,
