ASRC M2M case needs to run as fast as possible, no sync clock control.
If use sound card to handle ASRC M2M case,  the user application
should be aplay/arecord, then we need to consider xrun issue, buffer
may timeout, sync between aplay and arecord,  these should't be
considered by pure memory to memory operation.

DPCM may achitect all the audio things in components and sound
card,  it is good. but for the M2M case, it is complcated. not sure
it is doable.
