True, I have updated the commit message to remove the reference to
deferred probing.
If the DMA is requested upfront (at probe time, device open time?) the
driver would save quite a bit of time by not allocating and freeing the
DMA resources repeatedly for each transfer, thus most likely giving a
boost to throughput...

Ah, fixed this as well in v2.

Thanks for catching them,
