Shouldn't this patch remove the private member in dma_chan structure

Currently chan->private is used for sending slave or similar channel specific
information. Now if we want to add struct dma_slave_config, then IMHO it
would make sense to remove private variable and replace with dma_slave_config
struture. That way we can reuse this struture there as well and if someone wants
to add more stuff he can use the private_config.

Dan, what do you think about this?
