This isn't viable - the driver will deadlock if the application hits an
error and never gets to startup, or if the application tries to
simultaneously configure two channels (ie, do all the prepares and then
all the parameter configuration and then startup). The DMA driver needs
to remember the configurations for the different channels separately.
