The ADM does have physical channels, but when you utilize those channels you may
also need to describe the flow control used for specific transactions. And this
flow control has to be configured for that specific transaction, if you are
interleaving different flow control origination/end points.
In the case of nand, they actually use different flow controls on the same
physical channel. For UART/I2C/SPI, they use just one flow control identifier.
I see your point at specifying these as logical channels. That is certainly a
possibility. Then the ADM driver would just have to handle the logical channel
allocation. That would remove the need for the slave_config being sent.
