I am not convinced this is useful. The variable could easily be added back
by someone who debugs this driver. The code has to be changed anyway to
make use of this variable.

Well, it's somewhat related to virtual dma support, but that's not my
point. My point is that this patch is quite big and thus hard to review.
If we find ways to make it smaller and to split it up in multiple
patches then we should do so, because it makes it easier to review and
in case you break something here we raise the chance that a "git bisect"
lands on a smaller patch which is easier to understand.

Please try and make that a separate change. I haven't really looked into
it and it may not be possible due to reasons I haven't seen, but please
at least give it a try.

The setting of the variable to NULL is ok, but the test is useless.

if (sdmac->desc)
sdmac->desc = NULL;

is equivalent to:

sdmac->desc = NULL;
