[PATCH 2/2] Documentation: dmaengine: Correctly describe dmatest with channel unset
From: Daniel Thompson
Date: Wed Aug 18 2021 - 11:14:19 EST
Currently the documentation states that channels must be configured before
running the dmatest. This has not been true since commit 6b41030fdc79
("dmaengine: dmatest: Restore default for channel"). Fix accordingly.
Fixes: 6b41030fdc79 ("dmaengine: dmatest: Restore default for channel")

Channels are registered using the "channel" parameter. Channels can be requested by their
name, once requested, the channel is registered and a pending thread is added to the test list.
