Re: Re(2): Problem with external dma and linked lists.

If you don't set eop, you will not get the eop interrupt and 
you will not advance the CH4_FIRST pointer to the next packet 
(i.e. to NULL if you only have one). You will however process 
the DMA data buffer and send it out to the external DMA. 

If you choose the approach to skip eop in the output descriptors,
you could use e.g. R_DMA_CH4_DESCR and the dma4_descr interrupt /
DMA descriptor intr bit to track the DMA progress.
Another approach could be to use eop in the descriptors but restart
the external DMA channel when you get the dma4_eop interrupt.
