Merge branch 'dmaengine' of git://git.linaro.org/people/rmk/linux-arm
Pull ARM DMA engine updates from Russell King: "This looks scary at first glance, but what it is is: - a rework of the sa11x0 DMA engine driver merged during the previous cycle, to extract a common set of helper functions for DMA engine implementations. - conversion of amba-pl08x.c to use these helper functions. - addition of OMAP DMA engine driver (using these helper functions), and conversion of some of the OMAP DMA users to use DMA engine. Nothing in the helper functions is ARM specific, so I hope that other implementations can consolidate some of their code by making use of these helpers. This has been sitting in linux-next most of the merge cycle, and has been tested by several OMAP folk. I've tested it on sa11x0 platforms, and given it my best shot on my broken platforms which have the amba-pl08x controller. The last point is the addition to feature-removal-schedule.txt, which will have a merge conflict. Between myself and TI, we're planning to remove the old TI DMA implementation next year."
