Subject: [PATCH] spi-dw: delete cur_msg when pump message and transfer
has finished

We see DPM device timeout happened in spi_max3111 when system suspend.

The root cause is related to the time we delete msg from dw_spi queue.

Below is the scenario how timeout happened.
step1, max3110_main_thread pump the dw_spi msg and transfer it. And
the msg is deleted from dw_spi queue right now.
step2, runtime suspend happened, there is no msg in the dw_spi queue,
it's permitted to enter into D0i3.
step3, After resume from D0i3, irq will not come for ever,
max3110_main_thread still wait for the completion of last pump message
step4, system suspend, serial_m3110_shutdown call max3110_out and
try to lock the mutex, but it has been hold and cannot be released
by max3110_main_thread for ever.
step5, DPM device timer timeout.

This patch is to delete the cur msg when msg complete.
