async_tx: structify submission arguments, add scribble
Prepare the api for the arrival of a new parameter, 'scribble'. This will allow callers to identify scratchpad memory for dma address or page address conversions. As this adds yet another parameter, take this opportunity to convert the common submission parameters (flags, dependency, callback, and callback argument) into an object that is passed by reference. Also, take this opportunity to fix up the kerneldoc and add notes about the relevant ASYNC_TX_* flags for each routine.
