I see, I cannot argue with that.
Is this change affecting the entire K3 family or only the new members?
If the later then I would seek for conditionality for the new regions as
non relooked SoCs these regions are off-limit for the SW.

Right, so Linux will need to use these soon ;)

OK, if the R5 needs to use DMA before DM then surely there is a need to
configure the channel(s).
I expect that R5 or DM will reset things back before booting the main CPU.
