[PATCH v3 21/25] staging: tegra-vde: fix common struct sg_table related issues

The Documentation/DMA-API-HOWTO.txt states that dma_map_sg returns the
numer of the created entries in the DMA address space. However the
subsequent calls to dma_sync_sg_for_{device,cpu} and dma_unmap_sg must be
called with the original number of the entries passed to dma_map_sg. The
sg_table->nents in turn holds the result of the dma_map_sg call as stated
in include/linux/scatterlist.h. A common mistake was to ignore a result
of the dma_map_sg function and don't use the sg_table->orig_nents at all.

To avoid such issues, lets use common dma-mapping wrappers operating
directly on the struct sg_table objects and adjust references to the
nents and orig_nents respectively.
