[PATCH v2 1/2] ARM: imx: Add the secondary request into the structure for imx-sdma

SDMA supports device to device (per_2_per) scripts to handle DMA transfering
between two peripheral devices. The per_2_per script, however, needs two dma
requests from two sides while the current structure only defined one request.

So this patch just simply adds the secondary request so as to let SDMA and
its user to add its implementation later.

[ Both change in the SDMA driver and its users like Freescale ASRC ASoC driver
  should be taken along with this change in order to truly support per_2_per
  sciprts. However, we here make an expediency by adding this first so that
  we can add either side later since this patch won't break any function and
  meanwhile it can make merge window more smoothly: we don't need to apply the
  change inside dmaengine branch via ASoC tree any more. -- Nicolin ]
