Thanks Sricharan.

The idea for introducing global dma_threshold was to give option
for controlling the behavior from one place. If someone wants to
change the length above which dma will be used, then It can be
controlled from once place in the probe function itself.

Also, min(qup->out_fifo_sz, qup->in_fifo_sz) requires comparison
and adding in qup_i2c_xfer_v2 will make this happen everytime.

Regards,
Abhishek
