ioat2: fix performance regression

Commit 07934481

 "DMAENGINE: generic channel status v2" changed the interface for
how dma channel progress is retrieved.  It inadvertently exported an internal
helper function ioat_tx_status() instead of ioat_dma_tx_status().  The latter
polls the hardware to get the latest completion state, while the helper just
evaluates the current state without touching hardware.  The effect is that we
end up waiting for completion timeouts or descriptor allocation errors before
the completion state is updated.

iperf (before fix):
[SUM]  0.0-41.3 sec   364 MBytes  73.9 Mbits/sec

iperf (after fix):
[SUM]  0.0- 4.5 sec   499 MBytes   940 Mbits/sec

This is a regression starting with 2.6.35.
