snd_pcm_lib_malloc_pages() should be called only from hw_params.
Prior to that, you need to set up the dam_buffer type by calling
snd_pcm_lib_preallocate_pages() or
snd_pcm_lib_preallocate_pages_for_all() at the time to create a PCM
instance. The size can be 0 if not necessary to allocate there but
later on demand.

Ah, OK.
