I've just developed and tested cyclic DMA transfer for a SPI device on a IMX6UL with kernel 4.9.88
I wanted to have a single SPI transfer repeated continuously in order to feed a DAC for generation of a particular waveform for a medical device, without interruption and minimal jitter (this is why I though to make the change at low level, instead of making the protocol driver to pump several identical messages to SPI subsystem)
I am wondering if this feature could be interesting for other applications and if it is worth to submit a patch for drivers/spi/spi-imx.c
This is definitely a wrong list for those changes, it should go to
LKML instead. This list is used for discussions regarding Yocto
Project distribution, and I believe you're interested in merging your
changes into Kernel. For that you should post this RFC to LKML.

Thank you in advance
