Your driver should be written in terms of the ASoC DMA framework.

Linus' tree, or mine.  Have you even looked at the soc-dmaengine-pcm
code?  It uncondtionally requests a cyclic channel.

Please be more specific.  What are the concrete problems that you see?
Why is it not possible to address them within the framework?
