Not really. For instance on am33xx SoCs the MPU usually accesses McASP 
registers trough L4 interconnect, which is not accessible by DMA 
controller. For DMA controller the data port is also mapped trough L3 
bus to entirely different address and a simple register offset is not 
enough. Naturally this mapping may change SoC to SoC.

I have been working with OMAP family chips so long that I start think 
everybody would know their internal workings. Sorry about that.

Best regards,
