Making a synchronous call (doesn't return until copy is finished) to adi_dma_MemoryCopy or adi_dma_MemoryCopy2D can block indefinitely if callback from the DMA manager uses the DCB instead of being live. (Synchronous calls are made by passing NULL for the client callback function).
FIX: pMemoryCopyData->TransferInProgressFlag should be changed to FALSE inside of the interrupt level of processing, instead of at the DCB level, inside of the adi_dma driver.
WORKAROUND: Do not use the DCB in any memory streams you want to call synchronously.
At a minimum, I think this possibility for deadlock should be pointed out in the Device Drivers and System Services manual, but the driver fix should be very easy.
VisualDSP++ 5.1 has been released which fixes this issue.
