I think the easiest way to test this empirically would be to just hack
dmatest to do a bunch of mem-to-mem transfers which it pauses and
checks the copied data is consistent with the reported residue. Also,
it would need to check the source/destination address registers in the
pl330 for evidence of bytes read but not written. And the pl330.c
driver would need to be fixed to not ignore the requested maxburst
when doing mem-to-mem transfers.
