Hmm...happened error when merged but I don't know how can solve that :-(

IMHO, your first option is better to me but it depends on Takashi...hehe...
Anyway Thanks and Happy New year!

Takashi, as Russell's first option, could you please make some branch which
includes following to me?
Of course, I know you need rebase you tree for sorry for bothering.

sense to a common audio-dma device shared across all platforms.

ASoC: Samsung: Rename DMA device

Some Samsung SoCs have a PCM(DSP) controller. So the name
s3c24xx-pcm-audio for DMA driver is not very appropraite.
This patch moves :-
s3c24xx-pcm-audio -> samsung-audio
