That looks about right. I would encourage DMA_CTRL_ACK to always be set
for slave stuff, because it will (according to my understanding of it)
make the behaviour no different from the async_tx stuff... which is
important when support for that stuff gets added.

We could, of course, set DMA_CTRL_ACK in the slave APIs beneath the
user, but the user has access to tx->flags between the prepare and
submit calls... And doing it in the submit callback will force DMA
engine drivers to have two separate submission paths (as tx'es can't
be acked at submission time.)
