When dma_cookie_complete() is called in hidma_process_completed(),
dma_cookie_status() will return DMA_COMPLETE in hidma_tx_status(). Then,
hidma_txn_is_success() will be called to use channel cookie
mchan->last_success to do additional DMA status check. Current code
assigns mchan->last_success after dma_cookie_complete(). This causes
a race condition of dma_cookie_status() returns DMA_COMPLETE before
mchan->last_success is assigned correctly. The race will cause
hidma_tx_status() return DMA_ERROR but the transaction is actually a
success. Moreover, in async_tx case, it will cause a timeout panic
in async_tx_quiesce().
