Subject[PATCH V3 0/3] Add support for using external dma in SDHCI
Currently the generic SDHCI code in the Linux kernel supports the SD
standard DMA integrated into the host controller but does not have any
support for external DMA controllers implemented using dmaengine meaning
that custom code is needed for any systems that use a generic DMA
controller with SDHCI which in practice means any SDHCI controller that
doesn't have an integrated DMA controller so we should have this as a
generic feature.

There are already a number of controller specific drivers that have dmaengine
code, and some could use sdhci.c actually, but needed to implement mmc_ops->request()
in their specific driver for sending command with external dma using dmaengine
framework, with this patchset, them will take advantage of the generic support.
TI's omap controller is the case as an example.

Any comments are very appreciated.


Changes from v2 (
* Remove CONFIG_EXTERNAL_DMA prompt and help graph;
* Add checking for cmd->data;
* Add checking if there's 'dmas' in device tree before decide using external dma.

Changes from v1 (
(The code on patch 1/3 only was revised)
* Address comments from Arnd:
- Release channel when failed to request it unconditionally;
- Skip warning message if get EPROBE_DEFER;
* Address Andrian's comments:
- Replace extdma with external_dma;
- Add release dma resources in sdhci_cleanup_host() and sdhci_remove_host();
- Release dma resources once dmaengine_submit() failed.
- Put rx/tx_chan in struct sdhci_host, and removed unused structure.
* Fall back to the DMA/PIO which standard SDHCI supports, if sdhci_external_dma_setup()
or sdhci_external_dma_init failed;
