I have to also say, that practically all the audio hardware works in
"pull-model". They'll trigger hardware interrupt each time they need
more data, in other words, they "pull" data. You can't "push" data
there. In pull-based model you bring this same functionality up to
software, otherwise you need nasty buffer somewhere in-between.
