As I mentioned in the previous followup, if your device is a
USB-audio, the patch doesn't help because it's for devices with
buffers using dma_alloc_coherent().  For USB-audio, it uses vmalloc
for an intermediate buffer.  Maybe this should be changed to dma_*()
stuff for such architectures.

Nevertheless, I don't know whether the crash is related with the
audio part...
