Each engine is capable of writing back completed descriptor counts to host memory. This allows the driver to poll host memory to determine when the DMA is complete instead of waiting for an interrupt.

For a given DMA engine, the completed descriptor count writeback occurs when the DMA completes a transfer for a descriptor, and ie_descriptor_completed and Pollmode_wb_enable are set. The completed descriptor count reported is the total number of completed descriptors since the DMA was initiated (not just those descriptors with the Completed flag set). The writeback address is defined by the Pollmode_hi_wb_addr and Pollmode_lo_wb_addr registers.
