The BAM mode requires buffer for start tag data and tx, rx SG

message can be of this maximum length so the buffer overflow will
happen in this case. Since increasing buffer length won’t be
feasible since an I2C transfer can contain any number of messages
so this patch does following changes to make i2c transfers working
for multiple messages case.

1. Calculate the required buffers for 2 maximum length messages
   (65K * 2).
2. Split the descriptor formation and descriptor scheduling.
   The idea is to fit as many messages in one DMA transfers for 65K
   threshold value (max_xfer_sg_len). Whenever the sg_cnt is
   crossing this, then schedule the BAM transfer and subsequent
   transfer will again start from zero.

I'm ok with this patch. I find the idea of a > 64k size message to be something that usually wouldn't be encountered, but... with some eeproms and maybe TPMs
perhaps this could happen?

 Thanks Andy for reviewing this patch.

There are EEPROM available with 1MB size like AT24CM01 in which we can read complete flash (128 KB) in single go by one transfer with 2 read messages of
 64KB.

 Thanks,
 Abhishek
