This audio use case is using the v4l2 application layer. in the user space
I need to call below v4l2 ioctls to implement the feature:

why the driver was put in the ALSA, because previously we implemented
the ASRC M2P (memory to peripheral) in ALSA,  so I think it is better to
add M2M driver in ALSA.  The hardware IP is the same. The compatible
string is the same.
