At least the OMAP code should not be affected by the bug, that you have with the
pxa-ssp. I think the bug could be also fixed within the pxa code, since the
whole thing goes down to inconsistent memory management within the pxa code.
Having said that, I do think having separate dma_data for each streams is a
really good idea.
One thing that I can think of in OMAP case, where this could fix a nasty race
condition is (have never seen it, but it is in theory possible):
Also in duplex case, when the second hw_param gets called after the first
omap_mcbsp_hw_params, and before the omap_pcm_hw_params for the first stream.
The second omap_mcbsp_hw_params will override the dma_data, thus we would set
bogus parameters for the first stream.
I do have comment however (down).
For the omap-mcbsp.c and omap-pcm.c changes:

Would not be more consistent around the places to actually use the
function instead of direct assignment here, and there randomly?
