SubjectRe: [PATCH v7 05/11] dmaengine: Introduce DMA-device device_caps callback
Hello Vinod,

Could you please keep on this patchset review? Really, the patchset isn't that
big and complicated to be working on it for such a long time. I've sent it out
at the time of the kernel 5.6. I've considered all the Andy's comments since
then. There is going to be 5.9 merge window soon, but the patchset still under
review procedure, while I still have some work, which depends on the changes
provided by this patchset. It would be great to at least submit it for review
before the next merge window, and super-great have it merged in before that.

There is a Peter Ujfalusi comment to the patch
"[PATCH v7 04/11] dmaengine: Introduce max SG list entries capability", which
needs your attention. Could you please take a look at that? So I could submit
the next patchset revision if you agree with the Peter' suggestion.
