S700 is not a new SoC, it's just this driver didn't support it yet. What
I meant is that I don't even know about the existence of upcoming SoCs
(Google seems clueless), not to speak of documentation to assess which
DMA controller they use.

I appreciate the effort, but this really tapping around in the dark,
since we don't know which direction any new DMA controller is taking. I
might not even be similar.

Well, what do you suggest, specifically? At the moment we have two
*slightly* different DMA controllers, so we differentiate between the
two based on the model. Do you want to introduce an extra flag like
FRAME_CNT_IN_CTRLB? That seems to be a bit over the top here, since we
don't know if a future DMA controller is still compatible, or introduces
completely new differences.

Cheers,
Andre
