- Place the txt index inside a comment;
- Use title and chapter markups;
- Adjust markups for numbered list;
- Mark literal blocks as such;
- Use tables markup.
- Adjust indentation when needed.

 accommodate assumptions made by applications using the async_tx API:

 4.2 "My application needs exclusive control of hardware channels"
+-----------------------------------------------------------------

 Primarily this requirement arises from cases where a DMA engine driver
 is being used to support device-to-memory operations.  A channel that is
 performing these operations cannot, for many platform specific reasons,
 be shared.  For these cases the dma_request_channel() interface is
 provided.
 
-The interface is:
-struct dma_chan *dma_request_channel(dma_cap_mask_t mask,
-				     dma_filter_fn filter_fn,
-				     void *filter_param);
+The interface is::
