Certainly if we're going to keep the current API with completions in the
DMA requests I'd really expect that the completions would get called -
if we changed that around then perhaps it'd make more sense for the
audio to keep track of things.  Obviously if we get reliable position
information and audio uses that then this is definitely an ASoC thing.

Yes, ideally this would be in the dmaengine core so individual DMA
drivers didn't need to worry about it either.
