See the discussion on what's supposed to happen with cyclic transfers.
Cyclic transfers don't complete, so adding them to the completed list
and marking them complete is the wrong thing to be doing.  So arguably
calling this function is also the wrong thing to be doing because
you're not completing the transfer.

I'll be addressing the issue of cyclic transfers when I eventually get
to sorting out the OMAP ASoC driver.
