Subject: [PATCH v4 8/8] bus: mhi: Improve documentation on channel transfer setup APIs

The mhi_prepare_for_transfer() and mhi_unprepare_from_transfer()
APIs could use better explanation, especially with the addition
of two new APIs to start and stop the transfers on channels. Add
better set of information for those APIs.
