Good catch.

According to a comment in at_hdmac.c, it is safe to hold the lock
while calling the callbacks, so that's probably the easiest solution.
I suspect that you've got something in another driver expecting the
lock to be released, and that might have to be changed.

I do think the way fsldma.c does it is cleaner, though, since it
allows the lock to be released for longer periods of times.

In either case, it can't be releasing a lock in the middle of a loop
like this.
