Ideally, Yes.
but if we try so, we have the following
 1) s3c24xx_pcm_dma_params -> s3c_dma_dma_params
 2) s3c24xx_pcm_preallocate_dma_buffer -> s3c_dma_preallocate_dma_buffer
 3) s3c24xx_pcm_dmamask -> s3c_dma_dmamask

none of which seem very nice.

These patches is not about changing naming conventions. Only changes, necessary
to have a clean and consistent namespace after integrating PCM driver, have
been made.
About changing the s3c prefix is a valid discussion, though.
