Well, I need to solve this problem myself, but I wasn't planning on doing it for
a while since I have a higher priority assignment at the moment. My 8610 sound
driver does DMA all on its own and completely ignores Zhang's driver, so I need
to fix that.
Unfortunately, I'm not familiar with Zhang's driver at all (it's changed too
much since I last looked at it), so I don't know what the *best* way is. For my
sound driver, I don't even know if I'll be able to leverage Zhang's driver at
all, since I need to use a specific DMA channel, and I need to control each of
the link descriptors. Zhang's driver abstracts DMA too much. So all I was
going to do is come up with a way to reserve channels.
