[alsa-devel] driver silence callback

Is the driver's silence callback meant to be able to *overwrite* some
part of the audio buffer that has already been written e.g. via the
playback *copy* callback?
In the case of my (older) hardware, once audio has been written via the
copy callback, it is gone (into a fifo), there is no way to overwrite
The asihpi silence call back will _append_ a period of silence to the
already written audio queue. I'm wondering if this is wrong?
Perhaps I should not have a silence callback at all?
I'm looking at the case in pcm_lib.c snd_pcm_playback_silence() where
"when runtime->silence_size >= runtime->boundary - fill processed area
with silence immediately"
My reference for silence callback.
