slave_sg - DMA a list of scatter gather buffers from/to a peripheral

operation is explicitly stopped.

A non-NULL return of this transfer API represents a "descriptor" for

The peripheral driver is expected to have mapped the scatterlist for
the DMA operation prior to calling device_prep_slave_sg, and must
keep the scatterlist mapped until the DMA operation has completed.
