Subject: [PATCH v3] OMAP: DMA: Fix omapfb/lcdc on OMAP1510 broken when PM set

With CONFIG_PM=y, the omapfb/lcdc device on Amstrad Delta, after initially
starting correctly, breaks with the following error messages:

omapfb omapfb: resetting (status 0xffffff96,reset count 1)
omapfb omapfb: resetting (status 0xffffff96,reset count 100)
omapfb omapfb: too many reset attempts, giving up.

Looking closer at this I have found that it had been broken almost 2 years ago
with commit 2418996e3b100114edb2ae110d5d4acb928909d2, PM fixes for OMAP1.

The definite reason for broken omapfb/lcdc behavoiur in PM mode
appeared to be ARM_IDLECT1:IDLIF_ARM (bit 6) put into idle regardless of LCD
DMA possibly running. The bit were set based on return value of the
omap_dma_running() function that did not check for dedicated LCD DMA
channel status. The patch below fixes this.

Created against linux-2.6.32-rc6

Tested on Amstrad Delta
