Ok, thanks, I found that s3c2410_dma_request registers 3c2410_dma_irq.
(in arch/arm/plat-s3c24xx/dma.c) I see other platforms like omap
register an interrupt handler in the pcm code when they do a dma

My scenario is this, the dma controller will be writing to the i2s
transmission fifo register (called I2SxTXFDAT on my platform - Jade).
If an overflow occurs an interrupt is generated. Among other tasks my
interrupt handler will have to clear a status bit in an i2s register.
I was thinking I need to somehow have my interrupt handler in my pcm
code, although conceptually it seems like an i2s thing.

If you have any hints for how I should design / implement this it
would be appreciated. I read the documentation on-line
but it doesn't quite seem to match my scenario.
