This patch broke some TI platforms (using edma) due to namespace
conflicts. The error is:

../../include/linux/dmaengine.h:54:2: error: expected identifier
before numeric constant (for DMA_COMPLETE)

.. it's because they define DMA_COMPLETE in include/platform_data/edma.h.

The edma driver seems to overall lack prefixes and thus pollutes
global namespaces, so it should be fixed up.
