Cyclic transfers are useful for audio where a single buffer divided
in periods has to be transfered endlessly until stopped. After being
prepared the transfer is started using the dma_async_descriptor->tx_submit
function. dma_async_descriptor->callback is called after each period.
The transfer is stopped using the DMA_TERMINATE_ALL callback.
While being used for cyclic transfers the channel cannot be used
for other transfer types.
