Dear Takashi

I might have been doing a very big misunderstanding.

Does this "ring buffer" mean
I should transmit runtime->dma_area many times 
from offset 0x0 ??

=> when I call 4th elapsed,
   should I send runtime->dma_area + 0x0 again ?

If so,
my driver get STOP on trigger funtion many times
even if I didn't stop it.


Does this correct operation ?
