The patch was more for Peter to take a peek at - there's definitely
some bits missing in the dmaengine driver (like the write to the
LCH_CTRL register) that would need to be fixed somehow.

However, it's worth noting that there is exactly one user of
omap_set_dma_channel_mode(), which is omap-udc, which means any DMA
channel made use of by omap-udc will have the LCH_CTRL register
modified to LCH_P, and it will remain that way even if someone else
subsequently makes use of the same channel. That's rather suspicious
to me... maybe we can just initialise all LCH_CTRL registers to LCH_P
in the dmaengine driver in that case! If not, then there's a bug
right there.
