Thanks for the review.

I won't argue there.

Indeed, that's what I thought as well. Then my question to myself was that
since that means that you can either 1) transfer data or 2) calculate the
checksum it seems like a pretty useless feature.

If you look at 8.6.2 DMA CheckSum Calculation Mode (for ast2400 at least)
see the sentence:
> 5. FMC80[2] is set when only checksum calculation is necessary, no data

Which I take to read that you can execute the whole section and you will
get a checksum + data transfer, but if you set FMC80[2] then you get the
checksum, but no data movement.

I have my own firmware here:
