Subject: [PATCH] dmaengine: fsl-edma: Annotate struct struct fsl_edma_engine with __counted_by

Prepare for the coming implementation by GCC and Clang of the __counted_by
attribute. Flexible array members annotated with __counted_by can have
their accesses bounds-checked at run-time via CONFIG_UBSAN_BOUNDS (for
array indexing) and CONFIG_FORTIFY_SOURCE (for strcpy/memcpy-family

As found with Coccinelle[1], add __counted_by for struct struct fsl_edma_engine.
