mem2mem does not really use dma_slave_config, it is for used by
is_slave_direction() == true type of transfers.

But true, if you use ADMA against anything other than ADMAIF then this
might be not right for non cyclic transfers.

True.

What if in the future someone will have a setup where they would need both?

So not sure. Your problems are coming from a split DMA setup where the
two are highly coupled, but sits in a different place and need to be
configured as one device.

I think xilinx_dma is facing with similar issues and they have a custom
API to set parameters which does not fit or is peripheral specific:
include/linux/dma/xilinx_dma.h

Not sure if that is an acceptable solution.
