Sorry, I must have been wrong here, what I was focusing on is those 
allocated SG DMA buffers, I am not sure if they are those you called 
"hardware buffers" here.

My understanding was like this:

1. in pcm_new() stage, the device PCM driver should call 
snd_pcm_lib_preallocate_pages()->
	snd_pcm_lib_preallocate_pages()->
		preallocate_pcm_pages()
and then the substream->dma_buffer is initialized with the preallocated 
buffer.

2. in pcm_open() stage, the device PCM driver should call
snd_pcm_lib_malloc_pages()->
	snd_dma_alloc_pages() //if we need to reallocate bigger buffer. *The 
substream->dma_buffer won't be freed, Takashi, this is what I thought 
you named "pinned" buffer.* And those reallocated bigger buffer via 
snd_dma_alloc_pages() will be freed at pcm_close() per my understanding?

Thanks,
~Keyon
