For the records: just doing the sparse annotation with __le32 here will
of course not be sufficient to make it work on BE kernels. I added
proper endianness conversion to all accesses to the descriptors and got
it to work with an arm64 big-endian kernel on the Pine64.

I put a patch here:
https://gist.github.com/apritzel/bc792c4dbbd8789f5f18aef538e8c440

This particular version is untested (though it compiles), since I just
adapted the working patch against the newer driver code and couldn't
test it yet.
I am not really an endianness expert, so don't know if there are smarter
ways to tackle this, if we should for instance provide access wrappers
to the DMA descriptor fields.

I will try to test this later today, if that works, feel free to merge
those changes into your driver.

Cheers,
Andre.
