NP, thanks for the review!

Low and Ultra Low Latency audio is not supported in the exiting upstream
qdsp drivers.

Also it depends on definition of "latency", is the latency referring to
"filling the data" or "latency between DSP command and response".

For former case as long as we have more samples in our ring buffer there
should be no latency in filling the data.
For later case it should not really matter as long as former case is
taken care off.

Low latency audio involves smaller sample sizes and no or minimal
preprocessing in DSP so am guessing that we should be okay with
responses in workqueue as long as we have good size ring buffer.

Yes, that makes sense!
