  This function can be used to initiate a scatter-gather DMA transfer,
where the address and size of each segment is located in one entry of
the dma_vec array.

The major difference with dmaengine_prep_slave_sg() is that it supports
specifying the lengths of each DMA transfer; as trying to override the
length of the transfer with dmaengine_prep_slave_sg() is a very tedious
process. The introduction of a new API function is also justified by the
fact that scatterlists are on their way out.

Note that dmaengine_prep_interleaved_dma() is not helpful either in that
case, as it assumes that the address of each segment will be higher than
the one of the previous segment, which we just cannot guarantee in case
of a scatter-gather transfer.

v3: New patch

v5: Replace with function dmaengine_prep_slave_dma_vec(), and struct
    'dma_vec'.
    Note that at some point we will need to support cyclic transfers
    using dmaengine_prep_slave_dma_vec(). Maybe with a new "flags"
    parameter to the function?

v7:
  - Renamed *device_prep_slave_dma_vec() -> device_prep_peripheral_dma_vec();
  - Added a new flag parameter to the function as agreed between Paul
    and Vinod. I renamed the first parameter to prep_flags as it's supposed to
    be used (I think) with enum dma_ctrl_flags. I'm not really sure how that API
    can grow but I was thinking in just having a bool cyclic parameter (as the
    first intention of the flags is to support cyclic transfers) but ended up
    "respecting" the previously agreed approach.

v10:
  - Add kernel doc to dmaengine_prep_peripheral_dma_vec()
  - Remove extra flags parameter
