[RESEND] spi: davinci: Allow device tree devices to use DMA

This allows SPI devices specified in a device tree to use DMA when the
master controller.

Since device tree is supposed to only describe the hardware, adding such
a configuration option to device tree would not be acceptable. So, this
is the best we can do for now to get SPI devices working with DMA.

Unfortunately, this excludes the possibility of using one SPI device with
DMA and one without on the same master.

When I originally submitted this patch, there was some discussion as to whether
dspi->dma_rx should be changed to return an error rather than being null.

However, I prefer it the way it is and don't see a compelling reason to change
