Yep, Janusz's commits 64844a6ac8ddd586cb832fea7cf2e93e5e7e03f4 and
471e3dec3abe2d41e8c742046353fcb01bc2459e do not cause problems on other
OMAPs but will cause that ASoC on 1510 is broken until his DMA
patch(es) are applied. I'm sure you Janusz will ping Tony until he'll
apply them :-)

We should remember that arch/arm/plat-omap/mcbsp.c changes done via
ALSA tree has been an exception and that's only for simpler procedure.
McBSP is not so critical if sources goes out-of-sync but DMA is.
