OK, so I will go ahead with implementing this solution.

The purposed solution will not break any existing API, by doing the
a. Adding a new API for streams alloc/dealloc
b. Adding a new API for submitting a URB which is stream capable (I will
implement this in a separate patch).

I agree with Sarah.
Hans, I appreciate your inputs. Please let me know if you see a good
reason why not implementing the new APIs purposed above for streams
allocation and usage. Otherwise I will go ahead with the implementation.
