I have successfully tested this modified patch-series
playing BigBuckBunny on:
* fb-tft device (fb_st7735r) - via spi-bcm2835 using slave_sg dma
* I2S Hifiberry DAC (snd_soc_hifiberry_dac) - via bcm2835-i2s using 
cyclic dma

Required additional patches to make this work
(especially I2S support, which is non-working since ):
* the clock-patchsets:
  * [PATCH 0/6] clk: bcm2835: fixes clk-bcm2835 driver issues
     (most are reviewed by Eric)
  * [PATCH 0/3] reorganize clock initialization and add PCM clock
     (no reviewed/acked so far)
* i2s patchset to enable the use of the clock framework
  * [PATCH V2 0/3] ASOC: bcm2835: move bcm2835-i2s to use clock framework
     (if I remember correctly Mark Brown has merged the driver patches)
* out of tree drivers for Hifiberry DAC
    (I guess I should upstream those...)
