K70 Audio SAI I2S DMA

I have a K70-based project with the SGTL5000.  The project is running MQX4.1.  WAV files are stored on an eMMC and played on command from a user interface.  The code was lifted from the audio demo code for the TWR-AUDIO-SGTL module.  Most of the time the audio plays with no problem.  But sometimes the K70 stops and a small buffer of audio data repeats forever.  Sometimes CW10.6/PEMicro Multilink FX can catch it.  Most of the time I can pause CW and look at the task info.  I have noticed that my audio task is always stuck in an ioctl() call into the sai dma driver (sai_dma_dsai.c) and it's blocked waiting on an empty buffer semaphore that is supposed to be posted from the ISR.




Is it possible for this driver to miss an interrupt?


I suspect a race condition somewhere because I have seen the system play the same file 300 times with no problem with the following sequence:

1. open file

2. open sai:

3 play file

4 close file

5 close sai:


Then I stopped CW and downloaded the same firmware and started again and the the file plays a random number of times before the system hangs.


Any ideas?
