Yes, we add different buffer_bytes_max limitation to each stream 
depending on its use case, basically we set it to the maximum value we 
claim to support only, we don't want to waste any of the system memory.

What I asked is actually that since the preallocation will be 
skipped(with passing size=0), can we just not calling 
snd_pcm_set_managed_buffer() or snd_pcm_lib_preallocate*() in our SOF 
PCM driver? I believe no(we still need the invoking to do initialization 
except buffer allocating)?

Did a quick test(plus passing 0 size for preallocate in SOF PCM driver) 
and it works for my use case(no regression comparing that without 
applying this patch), Thank you.

Thanks,
