Subject[PATCH] dma: rcar-dmac: use list_add() on rcar_dmac_desc_put()

From: Kuninori Morimoto <>

Current rcar_dmac_desc_put() is using list_add_tail() in order to
push used descriptor to list of free descriptors, and next DMA transfer
try to reuse it from this list. But because it is using *_tail(),
this reuse effect can't be obtained without using all of them.
For a longer-term solution, we should allocate hardware descriptors
using GFP_KERNEL instead of GFP_NOWAIT, but it is difficult today.
This patch uses list_add() instead of list_add_tail() for short-term
