add rewind-safeguard parameter
Rewinding the ring buffer completely causes audible issues with DMAs. Previous solution didn't work with tsched=0, and used tsched_watermark for guardband, which isn't linked to hardware and could become really high if underflows occurred. Added separate parameter that can be tuned to hardware limitations and size of DMA bursts.
