it is also broken because of the additional requirement of needing to
estimate the current position of the DMA transfer. The changes in
pcm_lib.c have made it non-functional.  When I went into fix those
problems I found a couple more issues.  It's ok for i2s to be broken
in this release, Grant and I both know it is broken and won't ship
anything based on it.

Here's the reorg series on linux-ppc
I want to do the rename of the globals that Grant suggested.

The pcm_lib.c changes may have broken other embedded drivers too.  And
yes, these other drivers are probably implemented wrong and the
changes in pcm_lib.c exposed their errors. But they will be
non-functional until someone notices and fixes them.
