Sorry for the delayed reply. Will try and explain more on whats happening:
We have 2 DMAs, one being I2S->ACP(Audio Co-Processor memory) and the
second being ACP->SYSMEM. When ACP->SYSMEM is circular then this DMA is
faster and keeps updating from ACP memory. This leaves no time for user
space to do any kind of in place post processing. This design works fine
if the user reads the data from SYSMEM at capture rate (that is the rate
at which I2S->ACP transfer happens). But, when an in place post
processing happens on SYSMEM then the data gets overwritten.

Sending and updated series with changes in 2/3 and 3/3 patch.

Thanks,
Akshu
