A possible regression to a SW which is using McBSP2 on OMAP3.
There many of those boards.
The threshold based transfer will cause that omap_pcm_pointer will
loose a bit its accuracy. Probably irrelevant but still better to play
safe at least over one kernel release before making it default.
Return value prints from omap_pcm_pointer while playing
"aplay -f dat /dev/zero"
