Using config tools to configure SPI using eDMA

I'm trying to use the config tools included with MCUXepresso 10.2.1 on a K64. When I select "Enable Tx eDMA channel" there is a block for "Intermediary eDMA channel". What exactly is the purpose of the that channel?

 

On another but related note, in the peripheral.h that gets generated there is a line that gets created that has a variable declaration that corresponds to that intermediary channel that I believe is missing an extern in front of it.

 

The section of the file looks like:

extern const edma_config_t eDMA_1_config;
extern const dspi_master_config_t SPI_OTHER_config;
extern edma_handle_t SPI_OTHER_Handle;
edma_handle_t SPI_OTHER_Intermediary_Handle;
extern edma_handle_t SPI_OTHER_TX_Handle;
extern dspi_master_edma_handle_t SPI_OTHER_eDMA_Handle;
