[PATCH v5 09/14] mmc: omap_hsmmc: set max_segs based on dma engine limitations

The EDMA DMAC has a hardware limitation that prevents supporting
scatter gather lists with any number of segments. The DMA Engine
API reports the maximum number of segments a channel can support
via the optional dma_get_channel_caps() API. If the nr_segs
capability is present, the value is used to configure mmc->max_segs
