Subject: [PATCH 1/7] dmaengine: sprd: Fix the possible crash when getting engine status

We will get a NULL virtual descriptor by vchan_find_desc() when the descriptor
has been submitted, that will crash the kernel when getting the engine status.

In this case, since the descriptor has been submitted, which means the pointer
'schan->cur_desc' will point to the current descriptor, then we can use
'schan->cur_desc' to get the engine status to avoid this issue.
