I should have highlighted this in the actual commit message but I
checked all of the callsites of ep93xx_dma_chan_direction and one
directly refers to an enum value, DMA_MEM_TO_DEV; every other one
just checks if the value is or isn't equal to another value of this
enum type (DMA_NONE isn't referenced anywhere else in this driver).
I don't believe this results in a funcitonal change.

Thanks for the review!
