Well, it basically means that your hardware is flaky.
The driver tries some workaround for the buggy hardwares, but it
didn't help in your case.

Try to disable timer-based scheduling.  The timer-based scheduling
requires the frequent inquiries of the DMA position, and your hardware
is buggy about it.
