I can't really understand what the purpose of this is, sorry.  What are
these modes and why would one choose one over the other?  Your changelog
suggests this is being done per board which implies that it's tuning for
performance but that's usually something that should be done in device
drivers, not the device tree - perhaps the tuning will change over time
as the driver is optimized or perhaps it varies depending on the
transfer.

The code mentions a DMA option as well, generally where it's available
DMA is something that's chosen at runtime based on the length of the
transfer.
