I am using a FPGA, with Cortex-A5 core, Designware I2S IP, Designware
DMAC IP. What I was done is to run tinyplay and tinycap to test the
playback and capture function on the FPGA. With my change, both of
them are okay now. I didn't push the patch which added cyclic DMA
support for dw DMAC because I didn't make it decent enough yet.
