dmaengine: mv_xor: fix big endian operation in register mode

Commit 6f166312c6ea2 ("dmaengine: mv_xor: add support for a38x command
in descriptor mode") introduced the support for a feature that
appeared in Armada 38x: specifying the operation to be performed in a
per-descriptor basis rather than globally per channel.

However, when doing so, it changed the function mv_chan_set_mode() to


instead of:

  #if defined(__BIG_ENDIAN)

While IS_ENABLED() is perfectly fine for CONFIG_* symbols, it is not
for other symbols such as __BIG_ENDIAN that is provided directly by
the compiler. Consequently, the commit broke support for big-endian,
as the XOR_DESCRIPTOR_SWAP flag was not set in the XOR channel
configuration register.

The primarily visible effect was some nasty warnings and failures
appearing during the self-test of the XOR unit:
