Hi Colin

Actually this was some memory alignment issue specific to my kernel driver,
which causes PA abort while trying to dereference target buffer from pa_mix(
) function. Sorry but initially I thought that it might be a PA issue so I
posted backtrace and issue details to the group, but later it was root
caused to a different issue altogether, which is already identified and
fixed now by our driver team.

so I updated the thread to avoid the confusion and also to make sure we can
now focus on our original issue of PA_STREAM_START_CORKED (bug: 39797)
which is still there.

Best Regards,
