This series intended to add support for placing CPDMA descriptors into DDR by
introducing new DT property "descs_pool_size" to specify buffer descriptor's
pool size. The "descs_pool_size" defines total number of CPDMA
CPPI descriptors to be used for both ingress/egress packets
processing. If not specified - the default value 256 will be used
which will allow to place descriptor's pool into the internal CPPI

This allows significantly to reduce UDP packets drop rate
for bandwidth >301 Mbits/sec (am57x).  

Before enabling this feature, the am437x SoC has to be fixed as it's proved
that it's not working when CPDMA descriptors placed in DDR.
So, the patch 1 fixes this issue.

Grygorii Strashko (7):
  net: ethernet: ti: cpdma: am437x: allow descs to be plased in ddr
  net: ethernet: ti: cpdma: fix desc re-queuing
  net: ethernet: ti: cpdma: minimize number of parameters in
