Subject: [LINUX PATCH 2/4] dmaengine: xilinx_dma: Fix race condition in the driver for cdma

when hardware is idle we need to toggle the SG bit
in the control register, inorder to update new value to the
current descriptor register other wise undefined
results will occur.

This patch updates the same.
