This Linux kernel change "dmaengine: sprd: Fix block length overflow" is included in the Linux 5.2 release. This change is authored by Eric Long <eric.long [at]> on Mon May 6 15:28:31 2019 +0800. The commit for this change in Linux stable tree is 89d03b3 (patch).

dmaengine: sprd: Fix block length overflow

The maximum value of block length is 0xffff, so if the configured transfer length
is more than 0xffff, that will cause block length overflow to lead a configuration

Thus we can set block length as the maximum burst length to avoid this issue, since
the maximum burst length will not be a big value which is more than 0xffff.
