The documentation doesn't seem to match the example, since you don't mention
the fact that the channels have separate nodes here, or which properties
are meant for the parent or the child node. Also, some of the "required"
properties are absent in the example, which makes no sense.

I also assume that some of the properties should just go away:

* xlnx,device-id should be the argument in the handle from the slave device
* data width should be a property of the slave driver that is configured
through dma_slave_config(), unless you can have dma engines that only
support certain a width.
