The cursor may change position 300 times in one second, so I still
concern the processing time. Request and free channel looks too heavy to
do 300 times per second. Conceptually, I just want to clean up the
channel rather than free and request it, so they are somewhat different.
I say it may sleep because mbox_abort_channel() is a copy of
mbox_free_channel(). I could change it to 'must not sleep' because
Mediatek controller does not sleep in abort callback.

Regards,
CK
