I looked into this in detail and found that the queue_xfer callbacks are tied
to the MHI channels. For instance, the callback gets attached to ul_chan (uplink
channel) and dl_chan (downlink channel) during controller registration. And
when the device driver calls the callback, the MHI stack calls respective queue
function for the relevant channel. For instance,

```
int mhi_queue_transfer(struct mhi_device *mhi_dev,
enum dma_data_direction dir, void *buf, size_t len,
enum mhi_flags mflags)
{
if (dir == DMA_TO_DEVICE)
return mhi_dev->ul_chan->queue_xfer(mhi_dev, mhi_dev->ul_chan,
buf, len, mflags);
else
return mhi_dev->dl_chan->queue_xfer(mhi_dev, mhi_dev->dl_chan,
buf, len, mflags);
}
```

If we use the direct queue API's this will become hard to handle. So, I'll keep
it as it is.
