In regard to the mask question, yes, this looks like a bug.
We should be AND'ing with the mask like before.

As far as the state, usually when we saw the IDLE state when invoking 
dmaengine_terminate_all on a channel that had errors. I have not
proved this, but I believe what happened was the following:

New transactions were queued when chan->err was set, causing
xilinx_dma_chan_reset to be invoked which ultimately results in the
hardware being in an IDLE state by the time xilinx_dma_terminate_all
gets around to invoking stop_transfer. At that point, stop_transfer is
going to time out waiting for the hardware to indicate it has HALTED and
ultimately will time out.


In any case, xilinx_dma_stop_transfer should be fine with the hardware
being in an IDLE state to indicate that the active transfer is stopped.
Case in point: The CDMA core also covered by this driver only has an
IDLE bit and no HALTED bit in its DMASR, and it checks for just the IDLE
bit in xilinx_cdma_stop_transfer().
