hardware to stop playing at the specific address.
On the other hand if I play longer sounds or a song I notice that the song
is skipping a lot and 1 minute sample is over in 20 seconds so it seems to
me that the buffer is overflowing. the pointer callback reads correctly the
current DMA position from the hardware so I am confused how the overflow
happens. Is there any other way ALSA tracks the position where to write the
