Some confusion about audio suspend.
We use android environment, wake lock is hold preventing system
entering suspend when audio work.
Only entering early-suspend, which close LCD etc.
If this is the case, we may not need consider suspend during audio play back.

If support suspend during audio work, some modification required.
I found SNDRV_PCM_TRIGGER_START/STOP is send in suspend/resume
The result is dmaengine_pcm_prepare_and_submit will be re-called every
Unfortunately we malloc descriptor in prep function, but no function
to free at such case.
