why not use _maxburst?

what does block and transaction len refer to here

this sound sg_list to me, why are we not using that here

Looking at definition of request mode we have frag, block, transaction list
etc.. That should depend upon dma request. If you have been asked to
transfer a list, you shall configure list mode. if it is a single
transaction then it should be transaction mode!

Here again I think driver needs to take a call based on dma_ctrl_flags.

Okay I dont think we are proceeding in right direction on this one. This
seems to be fairly generic dma controller and in line with other IP blocks
and you should take reference from those one. I dont think we need this
configuration and can do with generic api and configuration provided.
