Thanks for working on this. After looking at your serie, the one thing
I'm a bit uncertain about (and the most important one to us) is how we
would be able to tell through which interconnect the DMA are done.

This is important to us since our topology is actually quite simple as
you've seen, but the RAM is not mapped on that bus and on the CPU's,
so we need to apply an offset to each buffer being DMA'd.
