Yes, but there's no constraint code currently to force to align the
period size to the buffer size. The bug occurs on linux-2.6.31-rc6 on
ASoC s3c24xx platform.
The constraint to force to align the period size to the buffer size
should not be hardware depended, it shoud be done in the generic layer,
