From: Vanitha Channaiah <vanitha.channaiah@in.bosch.com>

This change adapt the fix commit 6b058fda9dce
("pcm: dmix: Add option to allow alignment of slave pointers")
for dshare plugin

Issue is that snd_pcm_wait() goes back to waiting because the hw_ptr
is not period aligned. Therefore snd_pcm_wait() will block for a longer
time as required.

With these rcar driver changes the exact position of the dma is returned.
During snd_pcm_start they read hw_ptr as reference, and this hw_ptr
is now not period aligned, and is a little ahead over the period while it
is read. Therefore when the avail is calculated during snd_pcm_wait(),
it is missing the avail_min by a few frames.

An additional option hw_ptr_alignment is provided to dshare configuration,
to allow the user to configure the slave application and hw pointer
alignment at startup

+<code>hw_ptr_alignment</code> specifies slave application and hw
+pointer alignment type. By default hw_ptr_alignment is auto. Below are
+the possible configurations:
+- no: minimal latency with minimal frames dropped at startup. But
+  wakeup of application (return from snd_pcm_wait() or poll()) can
+  take up to 2 * period.
+- roundup: It is guaranteed that all frames will be played at
+  startup. But the latency will increase upto period-1 frames.
+- rounddown: It is guaranteed that a wakeup will happen for each
+  period and frames can be written from application. But on startup
+  upto period-1 frames will be dropped.
+- auto: Selects the best approach depending on the used period and
+  buffer size.
+  If the application buffer size is < 2 * application period,
+  "roundup" will be selected to avoid under runs. If the slave_period
+  is < 10ms we could expect that there are low latency
+  requirements. Therefore "rounddown" will be chosen to avoid long
+  wakeup times. Such wakeup delay could otherwise end up with Xruns in
+  case of a dependency to another sound device (e.g. forwarding of
+  microphone to speaker). Else "no" will be chosen.
