From having a look at this, I am guessing that we have never really
tested the case where DMA_PREP_INTERRUPT flag is not set because as you
mentioned it does not look like this will work at all!

Is there are use-case you are looking at where you don't set the
DMA_PREP_INTERRUPT flag?

If not I am wondering if we should even bother supporting this and warn
if it is not set. AFAICT it does not appear to be mandatory, but maybe
Vinod can comment more on this.

Cheers
Jon
