Could an ADC card be treated as a ALSA sound card PCM device.
That card seems to have features very similar to a sound card.
Sample rate.
Variable gain.

I only suggest this, because it could result in a driver that is much
easier to implement as ALSA supplies a lot of generalised support code
at the kernel level.
