crypto: qat - fix DMA transfer direction

When CONFIG_DMA_API_DEBUG is selected, while running the crypto self
test on the QAT crypto algorithms, the function add_dma_entry() reports
a warning similar to the one below, saying that overlapping mappings
are not supported. This occurs in tests where the input and the output
scatter list point to the same buffers (i.e. two different scatter lists
which point to the same chunks of memory).

The logic that implements the mapping uses the flag DMA_BIDIRECTIONAL
for both the input and the output scatter lists which leads to
overlapped write mappings. These are not supported by the DMA layer.

Fix by specifying the correct DMA transfer directions when mapping
buffers. For in-place operations where the input scatter list
matches the output scatter list, buffers are mapped once with
DMA_BIDIRECTIONAL, otherwise input buffers are mapped using the flag
DMA_TO_DEVICE and output buffers are mapped with DMA_FROM_DEVICE.
Overlapping a read mapping with a write mapping is a valid case in
dma-coherent devices like QAT.
The function that frees and unmaps the buffers, qat_alg_free_bufl()
has been changed accordingly to the changes to the mapping function.
