In my opinion we should call error descriptor complete callback.
But I don't think we should move error descriptor to desc_completed
list.

When descriptor following our error descriptor will be completed
successfully vchan tasklet will be called.
So all descriptors from desc_completed list will be freed (including
our error descriptor)
We'll lost information about error descriptors and we'll not be able to
return correct status from dma_async_is_tx_complete().

In my opinion, we should create desc_error list.
When we get error we'll move descriptor to desc_error list and call
complete callback.
