Subject[PATCH v4 01/14] dmaengine: tegra-apb: Fix use-after-free
I was doing some experiments with I2C and noticed that Tegra APB DMA
driver crashes sometime after I2C DMA transfer termination. The crash
happens because tegra_dma_terminate_all() bails out immediately if pending
list is empty, thus it doesn't release the half-completed descriptors
which are getting re-used before ISR tasklet kicks-in.

tegra-i2c 7000c400.i2c: DMA transfer timeout
elants_i2c 0-0010: elants_i2c_irq: failed to read data: -110
