you now have 3 positions:
hwptr = sample in memory
hwptr+ delay = sample recorded on link (tracked by LPIB and wallclock)
hwptr+ delay + codec_delay = sample recorded by A/D
hwptr = next sample in memory to be DMA'ed
hwptr - delay = sample pushed on link (tracked by LPIB and wallclock)
hwptr - delay - codec_delay = sample played in A/D
the wallclock is only at the soc/chipset level, it doesn't know anything
about the peripheral.
