Err no, stop twisting the facts.  I know nothing is ever your fault.  You
rejected it because it was providing support for non-cyclic supporting
DMA engine drivers.

I've since added support to it for cyclic DMA engines, but I've retained
the non-cyclic support in it because I don't see why I should remove it
when it works for me, especially given the difficulties with getting
anything in sound/soc changed once its been merged.

Plus, as I've already said to you, I no longer develop and test it because
the platform I was using is now doing service as my firewall, and you'll
forgive me for not wanting to take the whole of *.arm.linux.org.uk
offline to mess around with ASoC stuff.  But that's not to say I don't
care about the issue.
