For the FE-BE case, do you have any suggestion for how fix it?

With DMA1->ASRC->DMA2->ESAI case, the DMA1->ASRC->DMA2
is in FE,  ESAI is in BE.  When ESAI drvier probe,  DMA3 channel is
created with ESAI's "dma:tx" (DMA3 channel
is not used in this FE-BE case).    When FE-BE startup, DMA2
channel is created, it needs the ESAI's "dma:tx", so the warning
comes out.
