Maybe the burst size isn't set correctly by default? It does say the controller
won't work correctly with stream disable set and an invalid burst size. Looks
like TX and RX burst both default to 16, per the Zynq manual.

With the stream disable bit set, the behvior we see on our hardware is
that priming just stops, with an outstanding transfer in memory marked
active in the status field by the controller. This happens at random, even
when doing single transfers at a time like with g_ether set to have a queue
size of 1. With SDIS clear everything works great. Given that the Zynq is not
bandwidth constrained, it seems like SDIS clear should be the default.
