That might be the same thing we saw. IIRC it looks like the DMA has
moved on, but the count gets re-set before the EOC? I can't see that
git site so can't comment.

The only way to prove this would be to spend time running this up
with tracing (which is how we found the issue) and analysing the
output (it's also why we adding the kernel tracing in earlier
patches)
