I was not able to find any such registers for GEM in the TRM
I tried writing to dma_cfg (0x00000010) and reading from design_cfg5
Its not reflecting anything(design_cfg5 always reads same value); It
is not helping.
The only way (I don't think its not right way either) I can think of
#ifdef __BIG_ENDIAN is reading some register in ARM cpu to identify its
current endianness and write dma_cfg accordingly.
