Subject[PATCH] dma: imx: Fix arm64 compilation issue due to min() size issue
Compiling the i.MX DMA driver for arm64 results in a warning due to
imxdma_desc->len being a size_t, while scatterlist->len being an uint:

drivers/dma/imx-dma.c: In function ‘imxdma_sg_next’:
/src/linux/include/linux/kernel.h:846:29: warning: comparison of distinct pointer types lacks a cast
(!!(sizeof((typeof(x) *)1 == (typeof(y) *)1)))
drivers/dma/imx-dma.c:288:8: note: in expansion of macro ‘min’
now = min(d->len, sg_dma_len(sg));

I am not sure if size_t is the right type for len in the first place,
but anyway the fix is pretty simple.

This fixes compiling an arm64 kernel with i.MX (DMA) support enabled.

apologies if this has been sent already (just ignore it then), but I
couldn't find anything quickly enough. I see this since -rc1, but it's
still annoying me in -rc3, hence this patch.
