What about following Matt Porter's idea and ignore the SRAM code
entirely and port the entire PCM code to generic dmaengine code first?
The EDMA driver needs to learn support for cyclic DMA for that, and I
might give that a try in near future.

Later on, the SRAM ping-pong code can get added back using genalloc
functions, as Sekhar proposed. That needs to be done by someone who has
access to a Davinci board though, I only have a AM33xx/OMAP here.
