SubjectRe: [PATCH V4 05/10] dmaengine: qcom_hidma: make pending_tre_count atomic

I was trying to mean multiple processor contexts here. The driver allocates 11
MSI interrupts. Each MSI interrupt can be assigned to a different CPU. Then,
we have a race condition for common variables as they share the same interrupt
handler with a different cause bit.

I will put the above description into the commit text.
