rapidio/tsi721_dma: fix failure to obtain transaction descriptor
This is a bug fix for the situation when function tsi721_desc_get() fails to obtain a free transaction descriptor. The bug usually results in a memory access crash dump when data transfer scatter-gather list has more entries than size of hardware buffer descriptors ring. This fix ensures that error is properly returned to a caller instead of an invalid entry. This patch is applicable to kernel versions starting from v3.5.
