This is effort towards moving the Tegra pcm driver for dmangine based
dma driver inplace of legacy dma driver for Tegra which have private API.

Currently, following 4 pcm driver can use this API directly keeping that
they already using the generic snd dmaengine pcm driver.
And Tegra will be next.

Other driver which can use this API are davinci, OMAP, samsung but
because they are not using the snd_dmaengine_pcm driver's api as of now
so not be very much useful for them.

Should I send one patch per driver change or squash all 4 file changes
in one patch? Whatever will be easy or recommended?
