Subject: [PATCH] crypto: omap-des: fix BUG_ON condition

dd->total is unsigned so it won't do any good to check for negative value after subtracting
instead of that we should check if the subtracted value is bigger than him

This was partially found by using a static code analysis program called cppcheck.
