Hi Russell:

I got an idea that we can split the pcm dma part code out, after that we 
can chose the buffer transmit way (AUD_DMA or I2S).
In that way i will make another i2s driver to transmit those buffer, but 
in the mainline kernel already lanched an rockchip i2s driver
(rockchip_i2s.c), so seams it maybe not an good way.

what's your opinion, russell?

Best Regards.
