I had a quick look at this, I am not sure that we want to call
tegra_dma_update_residual() here for cases where the dma_desc is on the
free_dma_desc list. In fact, couldn't this be simplified a bit for case
where the dma_desc is on the free list? In that case I believe that the
residual should always be 0.
