As it presented the device appears to be a memoryless device, however
you present it to the rest of the system as if it can support playback
of multiple effects simultaneously, which is incorrect.

My guess that you need to engage the memoryless input library to schedule
handling multiple effects for your device, including ramping up, ramping
down, stopping playback when effects runs out, etc.



P.S. If you are using devm_ there is devm_input_allocate_dveice().
